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?

    A few I was aware of the age, but most of them I wasn’t. This infographic gives me hope! I really needed that today.

    Never too late! I’m always learning something new, whether it be just a minor thing, or something big.

    Wow! That’s fantastic to see how many people achieved their goal late in life. Not that mid-life is very old. I’m hoping to succeed as a writer in my 70s. Now, that would be something.

    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.

    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.

    I teach about Van Goh, and I am an Alan Rickman fan. I got my Masters at the age of 50.

    This is a really great infographic! I can actually understand it! It goes along with my philosophy that we never stop learning. Love it! And now I think I can use infographics in my posts if I can just find some that I understand!
