Resolve to Evolve

Don’t wait until next Tuesday – Invest in Yourself Now!

Over the past few years I have been on a personal journey of self- development and improvement.  This has included small measurable goals like reading more and getting at least 10,000 steps each day.  It has also involved getting to know myself better by acknowledging the feedback that my body is giving me.  There is more harmony in accepting that I can decide what I enjoy and don’t have to make anyone else happy.

As I sought out information and improvement I found a great website where anyone can take inexpensive and even free courses from amazing schools like MIT, Harvard, and Berkeley.

I love to write and found a course from the University of Queensland in Australia on English grammar.  I enjoy history and politics and found a phenomenal American government course on HarvardX.   There are courses on a wide range of topics and the other students are all over the world.

Every day we all have the opportunity to learn and evolve.  This is not limited to mastering tasks on the job or checking boxes on a to-do list.  Learning doesn’t need to be expensive – it could and should include going to the library and borrowing books or using Wi-Fi to take a free class.  There are podcasts and audio books.  There is an abundance of information available for those who seek to learn.

Investing time and energy into learning every day is beneficial on many levels.  It will give you advantages in your professional life as well as in your personal life.  There are resources to learn everywhere and instead of waiting until it is convenient just go for it.

  1. Great post – I found the link on Susie Lindau’s blog. Learning, indeed, never stops; to me it can be a small thing – a chance discovery, a pursuit of some curiosity – or it can be a large-scale endeavour to discover. It’s a daily event. All that I learn adds to the richness of each day and to the depth of what I know. And the more I learn – the more I discover there is to know.

  2. Hi! Just hopped over from Susie’s. I completely agree with you, especially about learning from multiple sources like podcasts, audiobooks and the Internet! I’ve honestly learned so much more doing that compared to learning from formal education.

    I’m glad I’ve found another like-minded blogger; I have a lot of interest in meta-learning, productivity and self-improvement and it’s awesome that you write about stuff like that too! Great to meet you 🙂
