The article Our Goggley Advice to Students by Peter Drucker talks the importance of constant learning will be in our future success. An example of this occured with the engineers at Google. They needed to design a spell check software to work with their search engine. The Google Engineers could have used the same design set up with other search engines. However, they took their design one step futher with creative thinking. Their creative thinking came up with the ability to offer spelling suggestions that are not in the dictionary. Team work also played an important role. Google realized that a well designed solution requires many ideas. This type of of broad thinking is only possible with learning taking place at school but in one's life.


  1. I agree. We never stop learning. We can even learn from children. They have the best imaginations and creativity. Why do you think these companies are looking for creative individuals? How does this benefit the companies?

  2. Einstein once said, "Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death." Broad thinking and creativity are in the hands of students. Remember that the first step to learning is accepting instruction. I really like this post, great work.
