The Learning Never Stops: What’s On Your Agenda?

During our school years, we dream about life after graduation: the end of lectures, assignments and exams and the beginning of paid work and independence.

But now that we’re grown up and finished school, the learning never stops. In spite of years of formal education, I don’t feel I’ve mastered life. The learning never stops.

If you could go back to school right now, what would you study?

Would it be a subject you’ve always been interested in?

Would it be some skill you’d like to develop? Playing a musical instrument, songwriting, storytelling, writing, singing, dancing, painting or drawing?

Would you want to learn more about your emotions, where they come from and how to manage them better?

Would you like to work on your relationships?

Would you want to learn more about nutrition, exercise physiology or other aspects of healthy living?

If you’re not going to school now, why not begin your own independent course of study? 

Choose your area of interest or need.

Coming up: Where to start.

    I’m doing just this now. My own independent course of study. I stopped for a long time but I’ve recently resumed it. Which is excellent and I enjoy very much. 🙂 Great post as always.
