With next week being International Adult Learners’ Week its about time we step up and find out ways we can get involved in education, and create and maintain a life-long learning plan.
Tip #1 was to create a “To-Learn” list. This is a great way of (re) identifying your interests and finding ways to integrate them into your life. It’s a slow process, like trying to eat more veggies or go to the gym more. It needs to be added step by step so its sustainable.
So here is my suggestion for those of us who are just “too busy” to add more information into our lifes.
Tip #2 – The 15 minute Learning break.
First thing in the morning, or right when you get home from work is the perfect time to just set everything aside and work on one of your “To-Learn” items. Whether it’s scrolling through your RSS feed, reading an how-to e-book on your Kindle, or working through a tutorial online, it’s only 15 minutes.
Couple this with a cup of tea and the promise of answering a few work emails after dinner and I say you’ve got yourself a new routine going.
