How are you motivated so that Thou shalt keep learning?
You enjoy learning only when you get a chance to choose your favourites. Then learning becomes a part of your daily routine and stop being a burden. That’s the reason, I hated school and college courses where I liked only 2 subjects and I had to learn 5 extra subjects without any interest. After years when I started writing on the blog, my learning journey started again and this time I am eager to keep learning. What keeps you going so that Thou shalt keep learning?
Thou shalt keep learning because learning never ends
After I graduated I thought my learning has ended. I was happy not to give any more exams or to catch up on any new courses. I don’t know why I had that feeling at that time? Maybe I was enjoying my freedom. But soon after juggling with household responsibilities, I realized I wanted to learn something more. Maybe polish my passion for writing.
I remember telling my mom once that I don’t want to be just a mother or wife, I have been that and will be as long as I am alive. But now, I want to move forward. I want to be me, just me. For years, I have worked hard emotionally to bring different things into their right places till time destiny turned around and accompanied me on my journey.
Now I feel there’s so much to learn and add to my knowledge. Daily morning I get up and feel I want to read and digest so many topics that life will be short for all of these. But it’s important to control yourself and prevent overwhelming. I know I can’t do everything at one time. So, let’s enjoy one phase of learning at a time and keep the rest of it as a surprise.
You can also be motivated to keep learning
- Choose a community or group of people with the same interests. They give you many ideas on what’s trending and what new can you add to your knowledge bank.
- Be social about your learnings. Compliments from your social buddies further motivate you to learn more.
- Apply what you learn. I use all SEO knowledge in my daily posts so that they start working upon the traffic to my blog. I also frame all tricks I use to control my subconscious mind into bullet points on my blog.
- Try different forms of learning like through podcasts, Youtube videos, blogs, ebooks etc. They keep you interested in learning more.
There’s no end to learning as long as you want to learn. We learn so many things without our consent also like the habits of the people we live with!
Well, what are you busy learning these days?
