Before the middle of March 2020 there was not any job posting for an RTO Officer. Why would there be? Who had ever heard of RTO as a need? We may not even today know what an RTO Officer does, but there are a lot of them out there today. RTO stands for Return to Office. Now, we get who these people are and what they do. Many companies won’t have an RTO Officer, but instead an RTO Committee or someone else with the final say about RTO policies. This is a reminder that whenever we think we have it all figured out and know all there is to know, something new will occur. In the year 2000 we had, for the first time, people who became experts in Y2K practices and policies. And, that work was not even considered before the early 1990’s. What we know today is not what we are going to need to know about tomorrow. It can help, but keeping on looking for what we need to know for the future will keep up in the mode of continuous learning.
The Proverb tells us who we are if we don’t have a heart for learning. It’s not a compliment. We are to be learners and our learning is to start with the foundational truths that God gives us on how to follow Him and live our lives. Work has been a part of the human condition since Adam and how we work with what we have learned is part of what God wants us to experience. He gives us our talents, provides us our experiences, and places what is to be done in front of us, so we are to never close down our minds, or think we know it all. We don’t. So, let’s keep an active heart of learning.
