When do you graduate? The real answer is NEVER!

What’s the real difference between college and life after? In my opinion…NONE!

I have made this statement on a number of occasions much to the chagrin of my friends still in college and those recently graduated.  However, as I have been in the life after or ‘professional’ world for a little more than 5 months now it is safe to say not much has changed from the days when I sat in lecture hall learning various applicable lessons and traits.

For those who disagree consider this, as a student you answered to a professor who outlined assignments, proper conduct for the class and expectations.  How much changes?  Bosses like professors still distribute assignments and hold very high expectation while HR enforces proper conduct.

In my opinion, it is just the titles and location that change, the process of teaching and learning will always be present in your life.  If you are lucky enough to move from the position of employee to boss keep in mind you have also just moved from student to professor.  Ask any professor; while the title may change the process of learning will always be apart of your life.

What do you think?  Would you consider yourself still a student?  Or are you a professor now?  Leave any and ALL thoughts below!

    We have the capacity to continue learning and acquiring new traits to better ourselves throughout life. It takes a lot of self-motivation to do this outside of a classroom, however, and some people will fail to realize this. Some will always want that classroom setting to guide them; you don’t get that in the real world. Even though you’re doing the same thing that you did in college – learning, it is now up to the individual to attain the information rather than have it shown to them by an instructor.

    I second christen’s comment. If we stop learning then we cease to grow!
