Simple Wisdom Tip #106: Be a Lifelong Learner

The Roman scholar Cato reportedly started studying Greek when he was 83.  Someone asked why he tackled such a difficult subject at that point in his life.  “It’s the earliest age I have left,” said Cato, and he went right on studying.


Eric Hoffer said, “In times of change learners inherit the earth while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.”


The moral here is clear:  Be a lifelong learner.  It makes you healthier, happier and wiser.





Simple Wisdom Tip #105: Design Your Ideal Life Five Years From Now

I first learned this concept from Brian Tracy.  It is a wonderful and challenging exercise to think ahead to what you want your life to look like – ideally – in five years.  It’s far better to design one’s future than to just let it happen.  Dream a bit.  Where will you be?  What will you be doing?  Who will you be with?  What will you be earning?   What will your health be like?  What kinds of relationships will you have?  Etc., etc.


Once you do this, then develop some concrete objectives and action steps to make this ideal life a reality.  You won’t get there without a clear, measurable road map.  This can make an amazing difference in how your life turns out.  Want some help doing this?  Let us know.
