Can you remember how good it felt when you learned to ride a bike?
Or when you learned to swim?
(I’m assuming you did both, apologies if that wasn’t the case.)
Although plenty of people may have fallen out of love with formal education, there’s no denying the joy and satisfaction of learning how to do something new, or even of learning something for learning’s sake.

Find a new recipe and try it out.
Ask a friend who speaks a language you don’t know to teach you a word or two.

Open a big fat dictionary at random and learn a new word in your own language.
Learn a card trick and impress a friend.
When it comes to learning, the world’s your oyster.
