We're living in times where our knowledge and learning demands are growing at a rapid (sometimes ridiculously rapid) rate. I often find myself overwhelmed with the things that I have to learn to get my work done. The time has come, where we must take charge of our learning requirements. The traditional one size fits all approach just will not work in the current environment. Every person needs to specialize and generalize their skills in different areas. The one size fits all approach assumes everyone has the similar learning goals.
The need of the hour is a personal learning process. This image from Harold Jarche's website shows it very well.
Each one of us can customize this process and the tools to suit our individual requirements.
Quality control guru, Edward Demming, said "learning is optional, so is survival."
