Learn throughout life – life-long ingenious
To be life long ingenious, body and mind must study and be inquisitive. Especially the ongoing flood of media and the increasing digitalisation make is necessary to have one’s finger on the pulse of time. Global Topspeaker Maxim Mankevich shows in his inspiring lecture “Learn throughout life – life-long ingenious” how to process information’s to knowledge and how to always keep pace with the exponential progress to benefit from it for life time using the examples of old geniuses like Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Michelangelo or Thomas Edison.
The Keynote Speaker Maxim Mankevich himself has an enormous stock of knowledge about history, science, research and processes of creative thinking and learning. In his charming way he takes you on a journey into the old genius’s mind and shows how to learn and develop ideas up until old age. Goethe was 76 years old as he started to work on the second part of “Faust”, the Italian sculptor and painter Michelangelo overtook the construction management of St. Peter’s Basilica when he was 72 years old and designed the majestic ribbed cupola. And Thomas Edison, which we instantly connect with the invention of the lightbulb, invented throughout his life over 2.000 products and processes, which had a huge impact of the world we live in.
All of them have in common, that they understood, how important it is to pool existing information to generate successful ideas. The difference between then and now: Our knowledge doubles in two years and strengthens our progress immensely. Our world is in constant and ongoing change. Especially digitalisation and globalisation contribute to this development. Maxim Mankevich elucidates in his lecture with compelling examples out of psychological research, what possibilities our mind has, to separate unnecessary and necessary information’s.
Maxim Mankevich proves with his lecture that the ability to store information throughout life labels our mind. At the same time, he inspires to conceive life-long learning as a flowing process. Like his role-model da Vinci he emphasises that every minute we spent with gaining knowledge defines our life experience: “Take ONE good idea. Invest a lot of work. Experience miracles.”
