On my leisure activity in the future

March 27, 2021

Learning new things would be my pastime. There are numerous methods for learning, including reading, listening, and doing.

I may study books and learn from industry professionals by visiting libraries regularly. Although some of the authors are no longer alive, I may still profit from their historical perspectives. There are some things I can see and feel on my own, and the insights I gain from others are meaningful enough that I can learn from them. I may also study certain skills and topic knowledge at my own pace by reading practical books. Reading newspapers and periodicals can also help us comprehend our worlds better.

Another way to learn is to listen; this could be in a podcast, a YouTube video, or even our everyday interactions. I would absorb new knowledge in various scenarios if I focused on extracting relevant information, especially when I don’t have the luxury of sitting down and focusing on reading a book. Because some people are strong at presentation, listening to audiobooks or lectures is a good learning approach because the subject is much more engaging and enjoyable than reading.

Finally, the greatest method to learn a new talent is to practice it. This way applies to coding, public speaking, leadership, etc. To improve, you must practice and receive feedback. Memorizing new facts and better grasping new ideas is aided by writing my learnings down in blog articles and sharing my thoughts in everyday discussion.

Overall, the process of learning makes me feel personally meaningful instead of a waste of time. The learning process might be frustrating at times, but it can also be rewarding and pleasurable once you’ve overcome the obstacles. It is beneficial to have a study plan covering various topics, including technical knowledge and soft skills. This learning process would also improve my productivity and efficiency in completing my tasks and dealing with ambiguity.
