Things To Do For Myself Today | in blue box

I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. – Maya Angelou

Happy Wednesday!

There is something beautiful about knowledge (or education) – it’s one of those things that no one can ever take it away from you.

You know, I’ve never understood why everybody tries so hard to get to universities and gets (some) proper education. Until I found out that with the right education you have the power to change things – maybe world – plus it’s actually very important.

Speaking of universities, it’s not always about them. There are plenty of valuable sources we can gain from. Whether it’s a book or someone we admire.

And I believe we can grow trough learning something new every single day or be the one who teaches. So, why don’t use this day (and any other days) to make ourselves a little bit smarter and more enlightened?

Today, I’m going to do for myself…

1| read a professional book

I think reading is cool. I love reading and I can’t imagine living without it.

But if you are a bit like me, you are not a big fan of reading professional books (at least if there are not some pictures). However, I realised that it’s not always about books we enjoy or like. Sometimes, if we want to grow, we have to read this kind of books (it’s quite a metaphor for life, isn’t it?).

Recently, I read a book about the family sociology and it wasn’t something I’ll keep in my mind forever but I felt conscious. (if you know what I mean?)

So, from time to time, make a few minutes for reading a professional book or just an article and you will see it’s so bad.

2| enrol yourself in a course

Courses are a good thing. I think sometimes they are more valuable than some lectures at universities…

The good thing is that there are quite a lot of sites that offer very good courses. Some of them are free and some of them cost you money but the education is one of those things that worth investing, don’t you think?

There are a few sites that provide amazing and valuable courses: Skillshare, edX or Udemy. 

3| teach someone

We can’t be a qualified teacher to teach someone. You know, it’s about passing our knowledge on to somebody else – to help, enlighten or just meet new people.

I was that kind of child who always asks “why” (my mum has told me that it was quite annoying that time but she liked it). Now, I still ask “why” (and annoy my boyfriend) and I’m so glad that I’ve never stopped because this simple question can lead you to amazing things and experiences.

What are you going to do for yourself today?
