“The minute that you’re not learning I believe you’re dead.” ~ Jack Nicholson
When we’re kids we’re encouraged to learn new things. We’re invited to ask questions and be curious about the world. We embrace learning something new with wides eyes and excitement.
Then we get older and we get mad at ourselves for not knowing something. We adopt the adage that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, especially when we bump into difficulties. (Ever tried to learn a new language as an adult? It’s not easy!) It’s as if we think we should know everything automatically as we age. As if learning is reserved for the young.
As wise as we may be, there’s always something new to see, do, to experience. When we refuse to allow ourselves to open up, learn and grow, we dig our heels in the sand and get stuck. Never stop learning.
This week’s video is about the most important thing we need to do when we’re learning something new. Enjoy!
