I was in the shower a while ago and something really bothered me. We all know that learning in general is good for us, since we get to ‘grow’. We know that learning something new everyday is something that we should turn into a habit, but what stops us? For the attendees that we have for Manila Workshops, it is interesting to note that some are repeat attendees and these are the people who I often see and get to know more of. Like them (probably), I personally see the value in striving for knowledge and new learnings on a daily basis.
What stops us from making learning a habit? One thing that I could think of is that we think learning needs to be in a structured environment, but it shouldn’t be. We don’t just learn in school, or even during workshops. We learn through conversations. We learn through the shows we watch, through recordings and podcasts that we listen to. We learn through going to networking events and when we meet new people. We learn through different platforms.
Another thing is that we say that we don’t have time to learn new things. The thing is, learning is really easy to incorporate into our lives. We just have to make it a habit. For example, when we commute or ride the car going to work, why not listen to a podcast or a recording. When going out for coffee during lunch break, why not read an ebook?
There are so many lessons to be learned. My team came up with this idea of helping you learn a little everyday from different people in the metro. This project called 365 Days of Learning aims to help you instill that habit of learning. We want you to discover a whole new world by discovering the love for learning.
Here are some of the lessons that we have already posted:
