    You spend at least 16 years of your life studying.

    During these glorious years, your brain mass grows rapidly, despite those collage years, and all the experiments you went through.

    Then, you feel it's time to slow down and just enjoy work and life, opting to learn on the job, and grow in-place.

    Out of a personal experience, I can say, this is not a great idea!

    Brains are like muscles, they grow and get stronger as you challenge them frequently. That's what education teaches us. To learn and grow in ways we didn't realize before.

    It's well known that the human body generally stops growing by the age of 21. But that doesn't mean that your brain needs to follow this rule! Your brain might be the only thing that keeps growing beyond that time.

    To respect your mind, and to keep it interested in life and challenged. You have to keep learning. That's how I see it!

    I know, it's not for everyone.

    From a business perspective, it's better to keep you engaged in what you're doing to have you grown in-place. Than to have you leap ahead after achieving something new through your education. There are very good reasons for that, mainly maintaining the return on investment that was incurred to acquire you. It took time and expense to have you come up to speed. It's not good to see you walk away the minute your balance became positive. It's just pure, simple business.

    Working makes you dumber! You are expected to remain in your box for as long as there is a business need! Once you accept and believe your boundaries, you're continuously discouraged from attempting to escape. The longer you stay in your cage, the more experience you gain, the better "gear" you become in the well oiled machine that is the corporation.

    Now I'm not telling you to go ahead an embrace an anarchical living under a bridge, or going out to embrace your entrepreneurial dreams (which are likely to fail and therefore pushes you further into a smaller cage). What I'm saying is liberate your mind!

    Liberate your mind!

    Keep that awesome machine fully engaged and in full speed regardless of the "job" needs. Keep it liberated and creative. Do thinks out of the box. Learn things you never thought of. Take classes. Sit in on exams. Test your IQ. Just make sure you don't get too comfortable and lazy that you don't even engage that amazing machine.

    The least you could do is read a book. Or follow some good documentaries.

    Don't surrender to "the man". Educate yourself. Keep moving forward, and liberate your mind!

    Do it, even if you landed your dream job, and you're the CEO of Google or Apple, liberate your mind, and keep on learning.

    lol thanks for advertising for interracial gay dating on your website hehe
    That's true. I wasted nearly one year of my life working really hard for a company, with no time to think about anything and I felt like my brain was falling appart. Thank God, now my routine is not so stressful... =)
