Being a life-long learner is a quality of successful people. Having the motivation and the ability to learn and grow throughout your life is an essential quality in today's fast-changing world. We can learn through reading and deep reflection - but most of all I learn through life experience. I learn by questioning things - and asking the right questions to solve problems. Often, I learn from my mistakes, so life-long learning requires that I have the courage to keep taking risks.
