The Illiterates Of The 21st Century: Who Are They?

I’ve always liked sharing brilliant insights with my network.  This is a quote from a very good friend and colleague in Mexico (Juan Carlos Erdozian).  I think it’s enormously perceptive and captures the challenges of learning in a high change culture:

“The Illiterates Of The 21st Century, Are Not Those Who Cannot Read Or Write, But Those Who Cannot Learn, Unlearn And Relearn.”

    1. “Excellent point! I had not applied the message to the aging process (which I’m mightelly struggling with now, myself).
      I’ve always said that staying productive and making an impact, was the key to aging gracefully; but you can’t do either if you’re not continually learning and relearning. I really appreciate your responsiveness and feedback. Take care.
