"I learn something new every day." How many times have you heard someone say that, or have you said it yourself? I heard it the other day, and it occured to me that it's not necessarily an over-statement. Most of us really do learn something new every day. But we probably don't even recognize it or acknowledge it when we do. We just add it to the existing mix of facts and information swirling through our heads.
So, the challenge is to try to identify one new thing you learn every day. Or, even better, intentionally go out there and learn something new every day. Keep track - write it down- and I'll bet you'll be amazed at the end of a month at all of the new things you've learned.
Here are a few ideas for stimulating the learning process:
- Watch a TED talk- there are some new ones!
- Read an article about a topic you know nothing about
- Have a conversation with a friend or relative and ask them about their family history
- Watch a documentary film
- Visit a museum
Have fun, and learn alot!
