As educators, and adults in general, we get wrapped up in our day to day lives and leave very little time to explore our true talents or explore adventures or skills we are interested in. Days turn into weeks, which eventually turn into years and we haven't taken the time to learn a new skill or deepen our understanding of one of our passions.
I recently came across the following article, "How You Can Learn Anything in Just 30 Days" via www.lifehack.org and it made me realize how often I fail to pursue my life's other passions (outside of education) but instead get caught up in the day to day management of being an educator, father, husband, etc. When I evaluate the hobbies I truly enjoy in life, photography and woodworking are the first two that come to mind. I have always enjoyed them but rarely take the time to hone my skill, or learn a new technique to make me better at these talents.
With winer break soon approaching ,I thought this would be a great time to really dig into these hobbies and push myself to become better by reading and studying up on these skills. I am going to dedicate myself to taking time each day to explore what it takes to take these skills to the next level, while also enjoy learning something new. Whether it is reading a new book, watching a YouTube video, or following the latest blog, the opportunities are for learning are endless. All it just takes is a little time and dedication to do so.
