“The true journey of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but in seeing with new eyes.” — Marcel Proust “I do not think that a man is wiser today than he was yesterday.” — Abraham Lincoln \”I have never allowed my schooling to interfere with my education.\” —Mark Twain Assuming that the public school learning system does not crush your soul, you should know that learning is a great activity. It expands your perspective and gives you new knowledge that you can use to improve your life and your destiny. Even if you ignore worldly benefits, learning can be a pleasure. But in a busy world, it’s often hard for us to find time to learn anything that’s not essential. The only things that need to be learned are those skills that we need to survive. Everything beyond that is considered useless and meaningless. Even those who enjoy lifelong learning may find it difficult to make the effort. How to Stimulate Students\’ Interest and Motivation in Learning Full Video Download Here are some tips that can help you develop lifelong learning habits: 1) Always have a book It doesn\’t matter whether it takes a year to read a book or a week. Always make sure you have a book you are reading and take it with you so you can read it when you have time. If I can find just a few minutes in my day, I can read a book a week. I can read at least 50 books every year. 2) Keep a “Learn” List We all have things we need to do—a to-do list. These are the tasks we need to accomplish. So, try to have a “learn” list too. On it you can write down some ideas for new areas you would like to research. Maybe you want to learn a new language, pick up a skill or read Shakespeare. Whatever your motivation is, write it down. 3) Make more intellectual friends and start spending more time with people who are willing to think. Not just the smart ones. Also includes people who really invest a lot of time in learning new skills. Their habits will rub off on you. Even better, they might share some of their knowledge with you. 4) Guide thinking Einstein once said: \”Anyone who reads too much and uses too little will develop lazy thinking habits.\” It is not enough to just study the wisdom of others, you must yourself to think. Take some time to journal, meditate, or think about what you have learned. 5) Put it into practice Skill-based learning is useless if it is not applied. Reading a book about C++ is not the same as writing a program. Learning to draw is not the same as picking up a paintbrush. If your knowledge is applicable, put it into practice. 6) Teach others Teach others what you have learned. If you have a channel for communicating your ideas to others, you\’re more likely to solidify that learning. Start a blog, mentor others, or discuss your ideas with friends. 7) Clean up the information Some forms of learning are easy to digest but often lack substance. I insist on regularly cleaning the feed of subscribed blogs. Good blogs are a powerful source of new ideas. But every few months,I would realize that I had collected articles from certain blogs, just by briefly browsing them. Every few months, purify your reading to save time to focus on what’s important. 8) Study in Groups Lifelong learning doesn’t mean bogging yourself down in a pile of dusty textbooks. As of now, many online courses on the Internet have communication groups, which can give you an interesting social experience while learning. 9) Forget assuming you can’t refill a full glass. I always try to distance myself from any thoughts. Too many beliefs simply means too few paths for new ideas. So, actively seek out information that contradicts your worldview. 10) Find a job that encourages learning and choose a career that encourages continued learning. If you\’re in a job that doesn\’t offer much intellectual freedom, consider changing to one that does. Don\’t spend forty hours a week in a job that doesn\’t challenge you. 11) Start a project Start doing something you don\’t know how to do. Forcing yourself to learn in this way is both fun and challenging. If you know nothing about computers, try building one. If you consider yourself an artist, try painting a picture. 12) Follow your intuition Lifelong learning is like walking in the wilderness. You\’re not sure what\’s going to happen, and you don\’t always have an end goal. Letting your intuition guide you can make self-education a lot more enjoyable. Much of our lives are broken down into perfectly logical decisions, stifled by spur-of-the-moment choices. 13) 15 Minutes in the Morning Use the first 15 minutes in the morning as a period of self-education. If you find yourself too drowsy, you may want to wait a while. Just don’t put it off until later in the day as some urgent activities will make it seem like an inconvenience. 14) Reap the rewards of knowing information you can use. Knowing the basics of programming allows me to work on projects that others need help with. It may make you feel proud when you encounter a situation where you can use the knowledge you have gained through hard work. 15) Make it a priority Few outside forces can convince you to study. Desire must come from within. Once you decide to make lifelong learning a habit, you have to make it a priority in your life.
