I would remember a great quote from Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam on learning “Learning gives creativity, creativity leads to thinking, thinking provides knowledge, knowledge makes you great”. Learning is a continuous process, if we stop learning and thinking, then there is no creativity and knowledge in our life.
If you are IT professionals especially working with MS technologies keeping up with changes is quite painful, to remain competitive we have no option but to update ourselves.
Recently Microsoft has come up with Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA), Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA) offers free online Microsoft training delivered by experts to help technologists continually learn, with hundreds of courses across Windows Server 2012, Windows 8, virtualization, app development for HTML5, Windows and Windows Phone, Microsoft Office 365, SQL Server, Azure, and System Center.

Don’t learn because “You think you should learn” learn because “You want to learn“
