Summer's end often evokes memories of returning to school. One can almost smell the new crayon boxes and feel the excitement of a new school year, the anxiety of unknown classmates, routines and perhaps a little self-doubt that you'll do well.
The people I coach and interact with are life-long learners. They're curious, introspective and want to experience positive change. They appreciate the gains that come from examining their beliefs and habits.
As time-strapped adults, learning is often restricted to magazines and news broadcasts. This contributes to the polarizations occurring in politics and relationships.
Even if you don't have enough time to devote to an onsite college class, there are plenty of other time-saving options.
Looking for quick thought provoking ideas? Intriguing short presentations from a wide range of speakers about 'ideas worth spreading' are posted at Ted Talks.
No cost learning from major universities is freely available online at Coursera or Learn That. Continuing education credits are available for a small fee for some of the courses.
In-person community education classes are often available at community colleges, high schools and libraries. In the Philadelphia area we have two exceptional groups: Mt Airy Learning Tree and Main Line School Night.
Investigate the options, master life-long learning, and expand to be the best you can be.
