Abundance of Education

Of course distractions are all around us.  I overheard my girlfriend mention enrolling into a business class at a major university in the future.  ”There is an abundance of business courses you can access online through www.edx.orgwww.coursera.orgwww.saylor.orgwww.khanacademy.org and several more” I wrote to her in an e-mail.  Most courses you can find online are lead by instructors from prominent universities like Harvard, Stanford and Yale.  There really is no excuse to not know something you want to learn about.  It’s all there and accessible via the internet.  You might say there’s not enough time.  That excuse has to die.  We make time for things that we really want.  Even if that means we deduct time we give to mindless activities like facebook, instagram, tv, pointless phone conversations, etc.  I’m very much guilty of poor time management also.

Here’s a challenge I present:  Find one course and practice studying whatever topic for a few hours a week and then scale up from there.  Build your mental muscle now.  It’s as equally important as the physical. 

Make sure you’re not robbed.
