Adrian Grenier spoke on the 30 Days of Genius series about dropping out of college.
He figured if he wasn’t going to get the education the traditional route he needed to proactively learn for the rest of his life.
I like this.
Deep down all humans want to keep learning throughout their lives.
It can be easy to get tired or stressed from life and choose to flip on Game of Thrones instead of reading a book.
No big deal. Books aren’t the only way to learn. (They ARE amazing of course – and my wife would be less than pleased to tally the books expenses in my Amazon Prime account)
How about opening Youtube and watching videos about something you’re interested in?
Better yet, how about Twitter?
Most social media is a time suck but Twitter is still useful.
Pick the right people, follow their timelines, ask good questions, research the parts you don’t understand, and it can be like taking a university course that you actually love!
School has beat into many of us that learning isn’t fun. It *can* be fun if you find a topic you like and a method of learning it that works for you.
It’s so much easier to do that now than ever before.
