If we open our mind to life, we find that there is always something that we can learn.
I’m an avid fan of learning. I am a big believer that in everything, there is always something new to learn. With the clutter though, that we find in the busy rounds of our daily lives, it takes much focus and attention to allow that insightful learning into your life. This is why I am thankful that in today’s business trends, there are emerging entities that offer creatively organized learning opportunities for people like me.
My main calling is to raise a family. I am blessed to be in business too. As my days as a mother and wife are filled with family-related stuff, it is also important that I give time to nurture the work I am blessed with and to mentor the people who work with me. Every now and then, I find specific workshops and forums that fit into the work life and homelife that I lead.
Over the past year, I have attended light and fun learning get togethers on mobile photography, creative writing, blogging basics and forums on mothering. There have also been more formal learning opportunities when I took on tax classes, lessons on understanding your financial statements, records keeping and data management — the typical business topics but presented in a not-so-typical manner. Speakers and lecturers in today’s workshops have found ways of delivering the message in an approach that is friendlier and easier to understand. I also love that in the small classes that I participate in , I can ask questions and express myself in the context of my actual experience and where I need help the most. Formal learning opportunities today are no longer confined to the traditional educational institutions or only to the most known, relatively large scale training and consultancy companies. Today, the world is blessed with creative individuals who care enough to share what they know. We share the world with small but innovative entrepreneurs who take time to create learning encounters that can help someone in search of answers to his daily questions.
If there’s one thing social media has really given me, it has been able to provide me with some of the most helpful links to individuals and entities that help me nurture the life-long learner in me.
Go ahead and explore! There’s always a learning opportunity for you somewhere near you, for sure.
