The Life-Long Learner is an enthusiastic, open-minded individual that loves looking for opportunities to try new things. They love to read a good self-help book (or listen to an informative podcast if reading’s not their thing) because they’re information absorbers. They’re always on the go and can’t sit still— you may often find that they have a new creative interest or hobby (pretty much) every month. They may engage in local politics or are very committed to helping organizations innovate and thrive. Life-long learners may eventually want to pursue a Master’s degree or continue their education because they feel they are never truly done learning and enjoy the challenge that comes with the unknown. Are you a Life-Long Learner?
Luke Martin is a perfect example of what it means to be a Life-Long Learner. Luke graduated from Concordia University with a Bachelor of Commerce in 2021 and has since founded his own clothing company, Adore. When we asked Luke what it meant to him to be a life-long learner, here’s what he had to say:
"To me, being a life-long learner is losing the ego. Just because I’ve done something before doesn’t mean I know how to do it perfectly. They’re always different processes to work off of and new people to learn from."
