“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” ~Mahatma Gandhi
Learning is simple as staying curious and continuing to ask questions, simple questions like these: Is that true? How do I do that? What is this all about?
Knowledge is more available than ever. Here are some common sources.
- Internet encyclopedias and dictionaries to clarify issues and provides facts
- Forums that range from LinkedIn Groups, Reddit, and specific information related to product uses
- Do-It-Yourself Websites
- Search engines to guide an Internet user to sites which contain information
- Company product websites
- News and sports websites
- Podcasts Online books
- Print books
- Radio Our friends
- Online chat sources
I have no doubt overlooked some sources.
I stay active in learning environments.
I saw a question on an Internet forum about the difference between ethics and morals. Finding an answer to the question is simple. I used online definitions from Internet dictionaries. From various sources, I came up with this answer and got five likes for my response.
“Definitively, ethics are “moral principles that govern a person’s or group’s behavior” and morals are “a person’s standards of behavior or beliefs about what is and is not acceptable for them to do.” The difference between the two is that ethics are a set of principles or fundamental truths and morals are a set of standards or levels of acceptability. I cannot think of an instance when a person confused the two.”
Learning as a lifestyle enables people to develop new skills.
Looking up do-it-yourself solutions and finding definitions to words is just the beginning of learning as a lifestyle. Through audio books, people can learn a new language. Through service manuals, people can learn how to repair a motorcycle engine or a boat engine. Many people learn new methods of diet and exercise as well as practices of emotional and mental development.
Equally important is remembering the things I learn.
I am still learning.
Learning is a lifestyle. Every day I have to the opportunity to satisfy my curiosity and to find effective ways to live my life and do my job.
