Learning nontraditionally and unexpectedly!
Of course, this is an achievement I could accomplish at home, on the couch, perhaps by reading an intriguing book or tuning into an educational program on television. For some reason, these ideas don’t naturally appeal to me. I love to read, but it’s not a guarantee that I’ll pull something vital from every book. When I sit down to watch TV after a long day, I generally like to enjoy a laugh rather than settle down for an informative documentary. Maybe I don’t find these options appealing because of the type of learner that I am. To be totally honest, I think it’s just my preference. If I can learn something new and interesting while enjoying fresh air, exploring a different environment, meeting new people, staying active, gaining life experience, and pulling my son away from the powerful trance of blocky mobs and bricks, I consider the outing a resounding success. I have a mindset to always be learning; I hold a goal to learn something new every day. And if I can accomplish this objective and gain other benefits by just getting off the couch, then getting dressed and heading out the door is always an incentive!
