As is vividly described in the cartoon, a girl, faced with a bulletin board, is commenting, “This lecture is not related to our major and it is worthless to listen to it.” However, the other student says, “It's absolutely useful to learn something.” Undoubtedly, this picture displays two different learning attitudes in college life.
As we all know, learning is a non-stop process. Nevertheless, in reality, many young people are reluctant to acquire knowledge or skills beyond their own majors. There is even a small group of people who are somewhat utilitarian about learning. It cannot be denied that this short-sighted behavior will hinder the growth and personal development of young people. In fact, it is of great necessity to gain various experience and knowledge. Whether such knowledge is closely related to youngsters’ major or not, it will eventually become personal accumulation in the pursuit of learning. It is difficult for those who refuse to learn new knowledge to make rapid progress on the road of growth.
From the previous discussion, we can safely come to the conclusion that the attitude of learning means a lot to both personal growth and overall development. The young should enhance their awareness of mastering as much knowledge as possible, and should know that it is their knowledge and ability that will really make the difference in the long run.
