Have you ever felt that you are too late to change or to learn something new? Let me tell you today, “ITS NEVER TOO LATE”
I was talking to an old guy once, to break silence in the office while carrying on with our duties, the conversation made us alive and keep on working. The topic we picked is can an old person be enrolled in learning sessions and learn as any person, the reason he though it might be is, Old people are facing hardship to learn as they are getting old and their mind as well are too old to learn something new.
The reason might seem a bit convincing when you imagine an old guy of almost 60 to 80`s in class learning. What do you think? What would have been your answer if your were in my shoes?
I told him, learning is a choice despite the age. I understand as we got old, our learning capability decreases due to aging but that should not be an excuse not to learn and stay idle. He finally agreed with me somehow.
Would like to hear your thoughts on the matter.
For ages i spent times in school seriously studying, believing it was the only way to redeem myself from so called “Poverty”. However, it was quite challenging because the intelligence of individual was assessed by examination, test and quizes that at the end of every lesson/ topic.
By then, i had no complain az it was all the system not until i came to realize that at some point that was not quite right. I mean look around.
It is suggested that during childhood ages, the ability of creativity is very hight and that is the time to realize what someone is capable of doing and be passionate about it.
Unfortunately… we were all put in under one carriculum that recruited us all to learn the same thing while growing up, i mean people have different talents and they could be their career.
What i know is education is widening the knowledge and prepare children to face the world when they grow up. Inspite of teaching them same thing while they have different talents after ending their times in school. I suggest creativity should be treated equaly with academic inteligence.
