Many professions – law, medicine, accounting, teaching, just to name a few, require a commitment to lifelong learning. The person piloting the aircraft on your next commercial flight didn’t just get the job and stop learning. That person is constantly being trained on new equipment or methods, and subject to regular “check-rides” from pilots trained to spot potential bad habits. The profession of journalism doesn’t require CEU’s or regular, formal sessions on updating skills, but those who are at the top of the business make it their personal priority to keep learning new things, in both informal and formal settings. Here’s a quick reminder about the importance of staying current.
