We, as humans, are always drawn to growth, innovation, and advancement. Despite a lack of academic aptitude, people achieved enormous achievements just through "doing" and "invention." Now that we've progressed from the technique of 'learning-by-doing' to 'learning-by-knowing,' the essence of innovation has become muddled! Are we heading in the right direction?
The oldest stone tool evidence dates back 3.4 million years. The Stone Age was a period when humans learned to manufacture tools for their survival through creativity and discovery. Excavations from many locations around the world show how man evolved into a tool-wielding dwelling and achieved survival success.
According to history, they used practical knowledge. Their abilities were passed down through the centuries. Implementation and observation led to continuous improvisation.
Man progressed from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age as a result of technological growth. Their lives were transformed when they learned the art of mining, smelting, alloying, and casting bronze. Civilization and trade grew at the same time.
According to history, neither Google nor books were available at the time. They learned by doing, excelled at their skill, and sailed into the next epoch with more room for growth.
The Iron Age is the third and last epoch of the three ancient epochs. It refers to a period of human evolution that occurred after the Bronze Age and was marked by the production of iron-working tools and weaponry. This age was crucial in setting a man on the path to rapid cultural and social progress.
According to history, humanity was transported from this age to the modern age by the virtues of implementation and creativity.
The post-World War I period is referred to as the modern era in theory. It is marked by a sharp drop in creativity, tranquility, experimentation, and tolerance, as well as an increase in economy, population, poverty, and war.
In today's highly competitive society, everyone wants to be successful. Despite this, few people are able to recognize the virtues that are required to achieve it. We tend to be blinded by academic glitz and miss the fact that knowing trigonometry rules, algebraic identities, chemistry equations, and historical dates is insufficient for materialistic success in today's world.
The key is to improve your skills! Isn't it what the stories of the stone, bronze, and iron ages teach us? Steve Jobs, the founder of ‘APPLE,’; Bill Gates, the founder of ‘MICROSOFT,’; Thomas Elva Edison, the founder of ‘ELECTRIC BLUB,' and many others were school dropouts who knew the art of knowledge application.
What one reads may be forgotten, but what one learns by ‘doing' is never forgotten! Success is a result of properly applying what we've learned throughout our academic careers. Allow our burgeoning generation to explore new paths beginning in their adolescent years.
