Allow time for reflection: Reading and studying are a part of learning. At the same time reflecting on your own ideas and perceptions about the topics you are reading is key to benefiting from the experience. Use your notebook to journal and make time for pondering how these new ideas connect in unique ways or challenge your earlier beliefs. Prove yourself wrong: Challenge yourself to take up a task you have always thought you could not accomplish or is outside of your comfort zone. Whether it’s oil painting or building an invention you’ve thought of, if you attack the task with enthusiasm and a learner’s mindset, you will be amazed how much you can accomplish! Lifelong learning is a journey which can be enjoyed by everyone.
