It is from Latin studens diligent, from studere to be zealous
I am both a formal student currently pursuing a degree, but have always considered myself a lifelong learner. How about you? Do you have a thirst for knowledge, always learning new things from the internet, digital media, books, audio, anyplace?
To me, when you stop learning, you’re dead. One of the greatest privileges is to be able to constantly absorb new things via any method available to you, and to simply shut off your brain and let it melt from your ears as you watch reality show after reality show until your butt becomes part of your couch is a downright sin. Learning keeps you young and vibrant and interesting. There is ALWAYS ALWAYS something new to learn and apply to your life. Sure, we all have our nights when we are so exhausted all we can do is pour ourselves out of our cars, crawl into our homes at the end of a busy day and manage to get upstairs and flop into bed. I’m all about the occasional “veg out night”. But try to learn at least one new thing each day, then incorporate that fresh, new knowledge into your life. It’s fun!
And it doesn’t have to cost you a penny. You can be a $avvy $cholar without mortgaging your lungs for student loans. Today I want to pass along to you a website that was recommended to me. It’s called “Open Culture”, and it offers links to 700 free cultural and educational online courses from top universities. That’s a LOT of free learning!!!
I hope today you will take advantage of these offers and choose to take one of these courses. Please write me and comment if you do – we’d love to hear how it’s going for you! And if you want to learn more about yourself and how to design and realize your education dreams, consider life coaching with me! Give me a call or email today!
Remember, your brain is your sexiest and most vibrant feature – exercise it NOW!!!
