In the Power of Pull, authors Hagel and Seely Brown declare that the only sustainable competitive advantage is the rate at which an organization can learn. This means in our globalized economy, learning is not an optional, easily-cut luxury.
It must deliver just-in-time answers while continually improving itself as it adapts to change.
What applies to organizations, also applies to us as individuals.
We can’t afford not to learn. Unless we want to automatically be disadvantaged. The problem isn’t that we will make mistakes or won’t know everything. We will do both.
The error is in stopping learning or thinking we know enough so we don’t have to learn.
Learning is not an investment. It is our survival.
