Learn something new...

Morning time a cup of hot hello...A plate of crispy wishes...A spoon of sweet smiles & A slice of great success especially for u…Enjoy the day!!!!!!!!

“Good Morning”

Hello Monday. Here we go again, starting a brand new week. Most people hate Monday. Maybe it's because it's the end of weekend and it's kind of a struggle to get up to start the morning while on the weekend you can basically do nothing. Well, this is life people...You cannot live solely in a dream. Just accept the fact that you're living in a real world. Once in a while you can jump into the dream land of course, but try not to stay in there for too long. What you can do is wake up, do something and make your dream into reality. So you will be able to make your dreams come true and live the life you've been dreaming. I want to say I hate Monday also but if I keep telling myself about how I hate Monday, I will be miserable the whole day. Do you feel it too? I often feel that the mood I will have for the rest of the day is decided at the time you wake up in the morning. Life is a choice. If you choose to be happy in the morning, you'll be cheerful for the rest of the day. But if you choose to hate the day, I bet your day will be terrible. Just because you choose it. So, I'm not gonna say I hate Monday. I like Monday. Why? Because it's the chance to start things all over again. New weekly goals, new things to do, more time to make things right if you've done something wrong in the previous week and new time to learn something new. So what are you waiting for, fill your Monda and the rest of the week to learn something new. And the most important thing is to be able to start a new with the a happy face.

10 Ways to Enrich Your Life by Learning Something New (by Ryan Stewart)

  1. Ask. Did you ever stop to consider why children are like little knowledge sponges? They don’t allow pride to prevent them from asking questions. More than anything, asking questions is the number one way to learn more every day. And while I’m guilty of letting pride stand in my way when an opportunity to verbally ask a question presents itself, I often circle the wagons by searching for and reading about my question on the internet. Then I can follow up with someone who is more knowledgeable on the subject and talk intelligently - which is often better than a one-sided lecture on a topic.
  2. Read. Every day. If you have dead time, you have time to read. With the wealth of knowledge available online, there’s never an excuse not to read. If a question comes to mind and you can’t find an answer immediately, write it down for future investigation - this is a great way to build a reading list. If a question was powerful enough to make its way into your thoughts, it’s likely the answer will be powerful enough to stick around too - so it’ll be there when you need it.
  3. Search. Chase down answers to your most basic questions. Want to know what it means for coffee to taste “earthy?” Spend the next several cups of coffee exploring different flavors and aromas. Ask the barista what tastes you should be looking for in your next cup. No question is so small that it doesn’t have an answer worthy of you.
  4. Slow Down. Stop running so fast. If you jump straight from the bed to the shower to the car to the office, you’re moving too fast to uncover the questions that life presents - much less their answers. Want proof? Experiment by riding your bike or walking to work one day next week. I promise you’ll notice things you’ve never seen before.
  5. Listen. I mean really listen - to a lecture, a spouse, a parent, or even the lyrics of a song. Active listening promotes learning every single time we practice it. Great public speakers are great because they listen to the feedback (audible and otherwise) that they get from the audience and they respond to it accordingly. Active listening to music or nature will not only slow you down, it will teach you something new about the sights and sounds we often take for granted.
  6. Meditate / Reflect. It’s like saying “slow waaaay down.” Believe it or not, some things can’t be learned from the internet - or even the rest of the world. Some answers can only come from the inside out. Taking time to be still and pray/meditate/reflect is one of the best gifts you can give yourself - and it will make you a better learner.
  7. Look. Also similar to slowing down, but quite different at the same time. Look at things from different perspectives (and I mean that literally). If you’re accustomed to seeing something close up, look at it from far away. When was the last time you used a microscope or a telescope? Do you remember when you last looked through a pair of binoculars . . . backwards? Look around and find something fun to examine.
  8. Taste. One of the most enjoyable ways to learn new things is by taste. It can be as simple sampling a new type of coffee or espresso. Some of the most fun I’ve ever had has been trying new food with a group of friends. Taste and texture generate long lasting memories. Describing them can be a very challenging exercise.
  9. Touch. One of the most inspirational minds of modern times relied almost 100% on touch to learn about the world in which she lived. Helen Keller knew more about living a fulfilling life than most of us could ever imagine. Follow her lead and spend a few moments a day just noticing the temperature and texture of the things that surround you.
  10. Smell. Memories of smells are long-lasting due to the close proximity between memory centers in the brain and the terminus of olfactory neurons. Spending a few moments smelling new things can result in memories that last a lifetime.

Bonus Tip: Write.Similar to a gratitude journal, a knowledge journal is an attempt to take the ordinary events of a day and extract the most valuable learning experiences from them. Keep a notebook or journal documenting daydreams, thought experiements, and stressful times and you’ll automatically solidify the knowledge you gained from each.

The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind - William James
