As Henry L. Doherty said,

"Be as Student as long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life."

It's easy to forget that there's always an opportunity to learn something new.

It's also easy not to take in new knowledge if you have expertise in a field. Because you already know so much, so why learn more, right?

The author Austin Kleon talks about the amateur spirit in his book Show Your Work.

The beginner's mind has the belief system that there's always an opportunity to learn something and grow.

The pursuit of knowledge doesn't stop after graduation. It doesn't have to. You can always find ways to gain knowledge that suits you. That can be through articles, blogs, podcasts, online courses, books, lectures, etc.

Rodney Miller has written an insightful article on LinkedIn about the idea of "forever a student" and what those types of people foster.
