LearningJourney

If we're not learning, we're dying (or already dead).

Learning can come from:

  • A book/article/blog we're reading.
  • Screwing something up monumentally.
  • Watching an expert practice his/her craft.
  • Seeking tutorials from knowledgeable others.
  • Soliciting the advice and counsel of a wise mentor.
  • Paying attention to the cycles and rhythms of nature. 
  • Asking consequential questions, of ourselves and others. 
  • Trying to get better at something (e.g., fishing, physics, etc.).
  • Reflecting on the "why," "how," and "what happened" of a previous endeavor. 
  • Observing someone make a mess of things (e.g., their job, their life, their children).

LOTS of ways to learn, but remember - stop learning, stop living.
