Do calculation fields not live update?

I have an active/inactive boolean calculation field set to: If ( (EnteredDate - Get ( CurrentDate )) ≥ 0 ; 1 ; 0 ). "1" being active, "0" being inactive. I assumed that since it is a calculation field that it would continuously calculate. But, for some reason it only calculates when I go in and update the "EnterDate" field. I had an EnterDate set to 11/29/2016 and today when I went to check that the boolean switched, the boolean was still marked active even though it was a day over. It should have been inactive. Am I misunderstanding how calculation fields work? Do I possibly have something incorrectly checked off??
