50 Ways to Live on your own terms

Here’s another “how to” list by Thomas P. Hardy. I can’t list all 50 ways to live on your own terms [go here for article] but again many involve lifelong learning.

For example:

Do something every day that terrifies you (love this one)

Remove all non-essentials from your life (start with your closet)

Have no more than 3 items on your to-do list every day (I’m still at 6)

Listen to podcasts at 2x normal speed–you’ll learn faster

What do you think? Can you add others?

#2. Invest at least 80% of your off time into learning

#3. Don’t work for money; work to learn

#4. Don’t learn for entertainment; learn to create more value

#LearnDay wants your lifelong learning ideas

P.E.I.’s Learning Partners Advisory Council will host the Island’s first #LearnDay next month, and is looking for Islanders to present their ideas.

“We are looking for your insights into and aspirations for learning in all settings, from early childhood to the senior years,” said Learning Partners Advisory Council co-chair Bill Whelan in a news release.

There will be series of short talks on new learning opportunities already available, and all the presentations will be livestreamed, but organizers hope it will not just be a day for listening.

“We are bringing people together to share their ideas, build connections and build capacity for long-term learning collaborations across the province,” said council member Bonnie Stewart.

#LearnDay will be Sept. 30 at Holland College’s Centre for Community Engagement in Charlottetown. You can register for the event at the #LearnDay web site.

[Editor’s Note: This is an interesting idea, but Yahoo News doesn’t give the geographical location or any web links or ways to share your idea. Still posted because it’s a cool idea.]

In sport, it’s about lifelong learning

“If you ever watch youngsters with a ball they don’t set up drills for themselves, they set up goalposts and select teams with little delay so that they can get into the competition, the game.”

This writer for the Irish Examiner believes different sports can learn from each other.

“I have always thought sports can learn a lot from each other and often wondered why they don’t learn more. During my youth I played a lot of sport, mostly Gaelic football, soccer, and basketball.

Throughout my entire football career I was grateful for the skills and understanding basketball and soccer brought to my football game.”
