Idle hands are one thing, but what about an idle mind?
As human beings, we thirst for knowledge. Heck, it’s the message behind the opening dialogue over top of every Star Trek opening – ever. We want to know more. We need to know more. How we do that is up to each of us…well, once you’re out of school.
Continuing on in school and taking courses (like night classes) is one way to do it. You can even take many classes online now (they’re the new “correspondence” courses). Those aside, you can learn from books that you buy or borrow. The content on the web – like blogs – can educate as well. And while learning on the job is likely the most common (and most cost-effective) way to learn in the present day, you may not necessarily be learning what you’d like to.
So, how do you learn? How do you like to learn? What’s your favorite way to learn new things and advance your knowledge in others? Let us know in the comments.
