“Never become so much of an expert that you stop gaining expertise. View life as a continuous learning experience.” –Denis Waitley.

Perhaps that is the most important difference between education and learning. We can receive an education by meeting the requirements, but learning infers an ongoing commitment. The danger is believing we’ve arrived or that the knowledge we have is sufficient to maintain a level or status.
