MP Gareth Davies discusses importance of education
Many years ago, a woman walked up to Picasso at a restaurant and asked him to scribble a picture on a napkin.
Picasso complied and then told her it was worth $10,000. “But you did that in just thirty seconds?” the woman said. “No,” Picasso responded, “it took me a lifetime.”
As Picasso’s story shows, learning a skill is essential for high, long term productivity. What is learned at school and at college takes much longer than thirty seconds, but the benefits are with us for a lifetime.
