“I never let school interfere with my education”-Mark Twain

Posted by Levine Communications Office on September 21, 2010

As a self-educated individual himself, Michael Levine believes learning happens in life, not necessarily in the classroom. Michael and LCO believe that honoring self-education and the successes it creates is important, which is why The Levine Medal was created.

The Levine Medal for self-education is an international award given yearly for achievements in self-education. The Levine Medal is a non-profit charity founded by acclaimed media expert and LCO founder Michael Levine. The charitable organization was instituted to spotlight and encourage the concept of self-education.

There are many methods to self-education, here are some of them:

  • As a self-educated individual, be persistent in your quest to, by your own individual standards, be successful.
  • Stay self-motivated. Maintain relentless determination. Keep consistent in your ambition. Live by the “figure it out” principal, and do just that.
  • Pursue practical, initial experience in your field of interest, whether it be in the form of an internship or a volunteer opportunity.
  • Adopt mentors, set goals, mentally prepare your life agenda, tune in to your intellectual senses and take risks.
  • Read, read, read.
  • Seek out and attend speaking engagements by individuals who have become successful in the same trade or field you desire to break into.
  • Realize that stepping into the networking circuit can prove to be a huge payoff. Do not be afraid to interface with the industry’s elite. By doing so you may eventually become one. (As said by Woody Allen, “eighty percent of success is showing up”)

The power of self-education is immense. Self-educators are motivated, inspired, intellectual, life-long learners.
