Once you stop learning – The Foundation of a Digital Creator Business!

Continuous Learning!

“Once you stop learning, you start dying”

— Albert Einstein

I remember the days when I absolutely hated going to school.

Studying felt like a chore, and I would often voice my displeasure.

It was not just me, but most of us kids were the same.

The most common response we received was, “Just finish school, and you’ll never have to study again.”

But that was one of the biggest lie we were ever told.

(there were more such lies that we as kids were told. If you are reading my newsletter editions, you will get to know about more of those)

Now, life had other plans.

I soon realized that learning isn’t confined to the classroom—it’s a lifelong journey.

The notion that education ends with formal schooling is a misconception.

Learning is a continuous process, a lifeline that keeps our minds vibrant and energetic.

The Relevance of Lifelong Learning

But in our fast-paced world, it’s easy to get caught up in daily routines and forget feeding good food to our brains (minds).

Many of us think that learning means going back to school, but it can be as simple as picking up a new hobby, reading a book, or listening to a podcast.

The idea that knowledge is a lifeline is simple, yet profound.

Without continuous learning, we stagnate.

Learning isn’t just for students; it’s for everyone, at every stage of life.

And more so, for us creators.

Content creation is not just about writing a few lines. It is about researching, knowing your audience, writing thoughtfully, promoting it and then selling it to make money.

There are multiple skills involved.

And in the dynamic world that we are in, every skill needs to be upgraded periodically if we are to stay up with the pace at which things are changing.

So how do you do it?

Through continuous learning.

Here’s how embracing a mindset of lifelong learning can impact your life:

Mental Exercise:

Just like a muscle, your brain needs regular exercise.

If you have heard about the concept of rewiring your brain, you will understand that your brain can easily be trained, moulded and make to become what you want it to become.

So just like your body, if you don’t exercise your brain, it will stay under-developed, mal-nutritioned and wasted!

Learning new things keeps your brain active and healthy.

Self-Esteem Boost:

Have you ever been in a gathering where you throw a few pieces of golden nuggets around a discussion that is happening and you instantly become the know-all guy?

Knowledge gets respect naturally. And that respect can do a world of good to you.

Gaining new skills or knowledge can give you a sense of accomplishment and boost your self-esteem.


The world is constantly changing.

If you look at the past few years, you will realize that the rate at which it is changing is only becoming faster and faster.

And the kind of business we all are in – irrespective of we being in a regular job or, a content creation business, the entire story is driven by knowledge.

Hence, it becomes absolutely essential that you stay up to date with the latest, learn new skills and keep upgrading.

And that makes being able to learn new things quickly, a crucial skill in itself.


The amount of opportunities that the mindset to learn can open is immense.

I was once an absolute dud when it came to computers. I had not touched a computer until 2002.

But that deprivation became my motivator to learn more about computers. And when I got a chance to touch a computer for the first time, I ensured that I spend as much time as possible to learn everything about it.

That is how I learnt everything I know today – website building, copywriting, blogging, affiliate marketing, social media etc.

In fact, the last week I repaired my daughter’s laptop myself.

So if you looking for growth, whether it’s a promotion at work or a new career path, continuous learning can open doors for you.

Enriched Experiences:

The satisfaction of having knowledge about something is inexplainable.

You cannot be taken for a ride by anyone.

You participate in discussions and you get respect when people get to know that you have knowledge.

Learning adds depth and richness to your experiences, making life more fulfilling.

Practical Steps to Keep Learning

Learning can feel like a dragging and boring exercise unless you make it interesting.

I was one of those who would run away at the very thought of having to pick up a book.

But if you want to learn, you have to put in the conscious effort to allocate time for it and then use that time wisely to learn.

Here are a few of the things I practice and which has helped me a lot in my learning journey.

Read Hours:

Dedicate a daily hour to reading.

It can be books, articles, blogs—anything that piques your interest.

Reading diversifies your knowledge and stimulates your thinking.

Here are three blogs I recommend.

Listen to Podcasts:

Podcasts are a great way to learn while on the go.

I listen to them while driving and set aside an hour every weekend to catch up on my favorite shows.

Take Online Courses:

Platforms like Coursera and Udemy offer a plethora of subjects. I’ve learned photography, basics of Python, and more from Udemy!

Attend Webinars and Workshops:

These events allow you to engage with experts and like-minded individuals, providing a platform for interactive learning.

Join a Community:

Find groups or forums related to your interests. I’m building a community you can join for free. Just reply to this email if you are interested in joining the community.

Developing a Lifelong Learning Mindset

Cultivating a mindset of lifelong learning is about more than just gaining knowledge—it’s about personal growth and staying relevant in a rapidly changing world.

Here’s how to embed this mindset into your daily life:

  • Stay Curious: Never stop asking questions. Curiosity drives learning and innovation.
  • Embrace Challenges: View challenges as opportunities to learn. Each obstacle you overcome adds to your knowledge and experience.
  • Reflect Regularly: Take time to reflect on what you’ve learned. Reflection helps consolidate your learning and identify areas for improvement.
  • Set Learning Goals: Identify what you want to learn and set realistic goals. Having clear objectives keeps you focused and motivated.
  • Connect with Others: Engage with people who have different perspectives and expertise. Conversations with diverse individuals can broaden your understanding and spark new ideas.


Things have changed a lot over the last 15 years.

Social media changed the landscape. It even changed the way we interacted with others.

And with the internet opening up, the number of opportunities have gone up like crazy.

But the other side of it is that a lot of people aren’t aware even now, of the many opportunities that the internet has to offer.

If you don’t keep up with the speed at which things are changing, you might just be left behind.

So be open to learning and keep learning!

What am I reading?

I am still continuing with Boron Letters.

It is an interesting read and if you are somebody who wants to learn more about copywriting and how to write a copy that converts, then this book is good.

It is basically a collection of the letters that Gary had written to his son.

While the read is interesting and you will be able to learn some tricks of copywriting, the content of the book isn’t essentially something of a revelation.

It is general discussion around life and the things that you need to prioritize in life.

If you are somebody who wouldn’t care about the actual content and is interested in the writing style, then you should go for it. Else this is a book you can skip!

Check out all of my favorite books at my Amazon store. Go ahead and check it out!
