Prepare to have your mind blown and your appetite to learn whetted by MY MAMA! That’s right we’ve got Marilyn Faulkner in the house, talking about how to be a life-long learner, what that even means, and how it’s going to bring more joy into your life! She shares some freaking inspiring awesome stories about rejection, being brave, and how to create a learning package for yourself, regardless of your age or stage in life!
One thing I loved that my mom shared was seeing learning as something you can control. What a gift to be able to learn and expand our minds regardless of any other life circumstances we are handling at the time! We shared 3 ways to make learning feel more accessible and actionable!
1.Understand the difference between learning versus taking in information.
If you find yourself feeling too maxed out and overwhelmed to read one more thing or study something you have a question about chances are you’ve been taking in information without translating it into learning. Learning has some structure to it, a beginning, a middle, and an end!
2.Stop compartmentalizing learning!
We like to put ourselves in all kinds of boxes with labels and believe in the restrictions they give us, but we don’t have to! Start now if you are interested! Don’t put a limit on what you might find thrilling! You don’t have to go to college or be in an organized class to dive into a question you want to explore! And you can still be a Netflix lover while being a learner!
3.View learning as a key to happiness!
There is easy pleasure in life and difficult pleasure in life and the difficult kind are the ones that take us to our joy. The growth and progress learning unlocks is limitless!
