Purposeful Learning


While we ask our kids to do their best in school, do we walk our own talk?

Do we commit to professionally bettering ourselves due to the intrinsic value of being a lifelong learner? Or, do we wait for the proverbial carrot to push us to explore professional development?

Lifelong learners are motivated to learn and develop because they want to. It is a deliberate and voluntary act. Being a lifelong learner (or L3 in this editor’s lexicon) can:
Make us less risk-adverse and more adaptable to change.
Challenge our current ideas and help us mentally stretch.
Help us achieve a more satisfying professional life.
Incent us to specialize in new areas.
Keep us ahead of the competition.

That’s why you should open ISE EXPO’s Attendee Guide only AFTER you decide you’re in this learning thing for the right reasons.

Then, check out all the seminars at https://iseexpo.com/education/ related to access network advances, network transformation, 5G wireline and wireless convergence, GIS, AI, and AR. These are the niched courses that will expose you to new ideas and help you connect with industry peers who face the same challenges that you do.

Don’t discount what committing to some much-needed education can do for your career. But, also realize that being a L3 is what it’s really about. There are no trophies, parades, or big raises related to it — just inner satisfaction.
