And by the time we graduate, we are sick of learning and we stop educating ourselves.

When our journey of learning should never end. So how can we design our own education system? That’s exactly what Gautam Khetrapal shares in this talk.

He introduces a three-step model, called The Wheel of Modern Education which keeps learning exciting, meaningful, fun, and relevant — for the rest of our lives. Stay till the end as he shares his unique template that you can use to design your own learning journey.

But once you grow up and experience life, you realize that you can’t ‘learn certain things – like personal growth.

Vishen Lakhiani, founder of Mindvalley and New York Times Bestselling author, discovered that the key to self-development was not to ‘learn’, but rather, to ‘transform’.
