Learning Without Realizing It…

How was your weekend? Hope you had a good one. Mine was normal (thankfully–no mechanical mishaps, which was great to not have).

Over the weekend I watched some videos to prep for a consult/call I’m having with a client of a client in about 20 minutes–I had to learn the basics of a new software program an author suggested we try. Which should be interesting. It’s not complicated (except for possibly reading the reports the software spits out for you).

So that was my weekend. Seems like there’s always something new to learn.

Since it’s for work, I don’t really mind it–and there are times in my personal life I’m learning too.

Which is my point actually.

We’re discovering and learning every second of every day (and I’m not counting this on a scientific level).

Every time you:

Talk to someone

Listen to someone

Watch or read something

Do a task you’ve never done

Do a task you like to do

You’re probably learning something. If you’re good at it, your subconscious may be trying to make you better. If you’re new at something, you might be concentrating on details, the rules, your opponent if you have one, or what-have-ya.

Learning doesn’t have to be like school or a classroom either. You can learn by taking a walk along a road that has a ditch full of grass. You can watch it wave, or think about how it grows, and more.

That’s just my opinion, from my tiny dot of the Internet.

So even if you do something you’ve always done–write a subject line, put together a character sketch–it’s not really the same. Even though the process is, the output is a little different. Even for the same type of a subject line, the circumstances will be different too.

Which is why things that seem like they’re always the same, really aren’t. It’s almost impossible to do things 100% the same each time–that’s what machines are for.

Until next time,
