Kenneth Arthur Ncho's post on Goodwall - Being self-taught means developing fundamental qualities for learning every day: -An insatiable curiosity (that of childhood not thwarted by school). -An everyday commitment (will and motivation). -A ability to deviate (traditional education formats and conforms). -Permanent opportunism (understanding opportunities, seizing your chance). -The taste and authorization for experimentation, exploration and finally tolerance in the face of uncertainty and the ability to improvise.
