I believe that I learn something new every day and sometimes these things might be big, like building up a computer, or small like the fact that the lady who sits next to me at work is actually a brunette or that there is a creature somewhere in the world that looks like a cross between a fish and a crocodile (maybe someday I’ll even learn it’s name).
I have taken various weekend courses in different things ranging from advanced driving to anti-hijacking to decoupage and scrapbooking, I have tried my hand at aromatherapy and calligraphy and have even tried painting and drawing. Yet when I look around me every day I see more things that I still need to learn and I wonder just how many people learn important things, and insignificant little bits of trivia, every day without even realising that they are doing it.
Come on – here’s a challenge to those reading this – give me two important things you have learnt in the past year, name a course you’ve done that was fun and tell me five insignificant pieces of trivia you’ve discovered this week which might peak my interest.
“And every hour of every day I’m learning more
The more I learn, the less I know about before
The less I know, the more I want to look around
Digging deep for clues on higher ground…”
