On the bus the other day, a kid of 12 or so sat next to me.
He’d obviously been out to buy a videogame which he’d unwrapped so he could study its instruction manual.
He was completely engrossed in what looked like highly complicated material.
It’s great to see someone completely absorbed in something they’re doing, particularly so when this young man had probably been in class all day.
He’d been learning the whole school day, yet still had the appetite for more after the bell sounded.
The big difference of course is that the game instructions were something he really wanted to understand.
They’d help him play better when he got home, and he’d maybe be able to impress his friends as a result.
There’s no doubt that learning new things is good for you, and of course the process is much more appetising when you learn about stuff that interests you.
It’s never been easier to discover things.
Google is a great place to start – don’t necessarily think about formal classes (although they absolutely have their place, and are a great way to meet like-minded people as much as anything else) – type whatever interests you into Google, and you’ll soon be off and learning.
What new thing are you going to discover today?
