Learning is one of those things you know is good for you! So why not start today, by giving your brain a good workout?
Today, go somewhere different, meet someone new and before the day draws to an end, read something you normally wouldn’t read.
In essence, today is a very good day to make your brain ‘sweat’!
Our brains are extraordinary and capable of learning more than we think.
The brain is our ‘universe within.’ How will you develop your universe within?
My suggestion is to start with action-based learning. Learn to speak a new language, play a musical instrument, sign up for study, create with your hands, use a new technology tool, travel far and wide, try a new sport, or have a conversation with someone thoughtful.
It doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you follow your fascination and practice getting better every day. Setting a pace for action learning is about activity, growth and performance.
We are at our finest when we are learning.
What are your plans for making your brain sweat this month and next?
Aug. 17 and 18, I made my brain sweat at M&IT’s IncentiveWorks trade show, in Toronto. With networking opportunities, a wide variety of interesting topics and great speakers from which to learn, the show provided ample opportunity to give my brain a good workout.
As the back-to-school advertisements fill the newspapers, I start thinking about my own interests for learning something new and having fun doing it.
Happily, I am signed up for a four-week course on Dream Analysis, with two Jungian Analysts who promise to guide me through a process of dream interpretation.
While I have no expectation to incorporate dream analysis into my professional work, I am following my fascination.
And I know I will have fun learning about the dreams of others!
