As a young publisher, Ben Franklin wrote the ever-popular Poor Richard’s Almanac. He was also a notable inventor, and he actively helped draft the Declaration of Independence. In his spare time, he was also a statesman and a diplomat of international repute.

No wonder Mr. Franklin was a man who valued the importance of lifetime learning. He said “Learn from everyone” and that’s precisely what he did. Franklin understood the world is one big classroom, and everybody is both teacher and student. So if you want to move to the head of your class, remember that you can learn something from everybody. And remember that in the real world, school is always in session.
