I am a work in progress. I give myself room to learn and grow.
I try new things. I keep an open mind and move beyond my comfort zone. I go skydiving or write poetry. I listen to country music instead of opera. I replace my usual morning run with a calisthenics session.
I seek out challenges. I volunteer for difficult assignments at work. I talk about sensitive subjects with my family and friends.
I ask questions. I gratify my curiosity. I consult experts and small children.
I welcome feedback. I invite colleagues and clients to let me know what they think about my performance. I thank my loved ones for helpful reminders to pick up after myself or talk more slowly. I use their input to make positive changes.
I teach others. I tutor high school students and mentor newcomers in my field. I show my grandparents how to play video games.
I read books. I explore nonfiction titles and great literature. I study science and history.
I take classes. I sign up for adult education courses at my local university and subscribe to e-learning platforms.
I make learning fun. I visit my local library to browse for free audiobooks, movies, and events. I travel to another country or around my neighborhood. I practice speaking foreign languages at ethnic restaurants and grocery stores.
Today, I train my mind to think. I add to my knowledge and skills. I pursue my passion for learning.
