LEARNING LIFE CYCLE
Age, experience & maturity happen simultaneously is a misconception. More often that not, knowledge is also supposed to follow suit. In reality, there exists a LEARNING LIFE CYCLE which has it own linear progression, if one is able to maintain the momentum.
The linear progression is DATA-INFORMATION-LEARNING-KNOWLEDGE-WISDOM. Wisdom is the ideal, but at the bare minimum, knowledge should be worth a compromise. Knowledge is ultimate life skill.
IF KNOWLEDGE IS YOUR APPAREL, YOU WILL NEVER GET STRIPPED.
