Academics – whether through the traditional educational process of schooling or incorporating independent intellectual pursuits – is a key cornerstone in creating a knowledge and reason based bond with the world around us.
A strong, persistent and genuine desire to learn is what drives personal growth and helps overcome your real and imagined intellectual boundaries.
If you choose to maintain a high level of intellectual curiosity, your opportunities will become boundless as your limitations begin to fall away.
The pursuit of knowledge and understanding is a marathon – not a sprint. If you choose, and you have the endurance, you can make it last a life time.
Raise your hand.
Crack a book.
Attend a lecture.
Stay after class.
Shadow a “teacher”.
Wonder – then find out.
In the end, it’s all academic.
