December 4–> Too Late to Learn Infographic

Oh, my! I looked at the calendar and realized Christmas is only 3 weeks away–yikes! Where did the time go? Where did the YEAR go?

 

Back on topic, the Thursday theme from the Article Writing Challenge is all about infographics. So here is another interesting one a writer friend located for me.Β  Are we ever too old to learn and succeed?

I see some really familiar faces there – and others unknown to me – but how fascinating! In their 20s, 30s, 40s, and OLDER, before they ever began their journeys toward their now noted achievements in life.

 

I can really relate, because I was 50 when I earned my M.Ed. degree back in 2008, which launched me into my current instructional design career. Now, at 56, I may have another year or two before I finally achieve my highest academic endeavor: earning my doctorate degree and becoming Dr. K. Lee Banks!

 

What do you think of this infographic? Did you know some of these people achieved their success later in life? How about you? Have you recently taken steps to pursue a delayed goal in your life?

  1. I love this infographic!!!! We live in a world where we are conditioned to believe that we have to have it all figured out the minute we leave undergrad.. my life has taken so many turns and Iam FINALLY enjoying the winding of it all….

    Thank you so much for this awesome and motivational post πŸ™‚

  2. How very interesting. I never knew that about most of them. This is actually incredible timing because I’m turning 40 next month and in my job, which I have been doing for 20 years, I am being asked to switch what I do completely and learn something very new to me. I’ve been hard core against it. I keep telling them I’m an old dog and can’t learn new tricks. I’ve always been someone who’s not very open to change. I’m sure I need to change my attitude and be open to learning new things more often.

  3. Ahhhh I LOVE THIS POST!!!! I had my babies kinda young (22 and 24) and had no career in sight. I’ve always known what I’ve wanted to do but never had the training or now the time to really devote to it. This is such a hopeful post because if it’s meant to happen it makes no difference what age you are. And congrats on your journey to being Dr K. Lee Banks!!!! Inspiring to say the least.
