Dead right Damon! Likewise, you don’t need to go to work to learn either. And you certainly shouldn’t limit yourself to the courses that are offered to you internally at work, which a lot of people do. They often say to me, “my company don’t offer us courses like that..”

I just read a great book called ‘Mavericks at Work’. It gives plenty of examples of companies getting ahead by the learning they do outside of their organisation.

And I wrote a piece recently about the hidden lessons in learning. Whenever you learn something, there’s what I call ‘the intended lesson’ and there’s always also ‘the unintended lesson’ too. Which often is more powerful, longer lasting, and more behavioural based too.

Learning that you don’t need to be at school to learn is the unintended lesson that school taught us.
