The original idea for Inspiration Bit was to share with readers not only what inspires me but also what I’m fascinated to be learning about while surfing the Web, reading other blogs, working. The motto of this blog is “Knowledge comes from inspiration – one bit at a time”.
But that doesn’t mean that we only learn things that inspire us. Of course, this is probably the most gratifying learning experience that we get, when we dive into and study something that interests and captivates us. However, sometimes we do learn out of necessity. But then the question is can we enjoy learning things that we are forced to or must learn as much as the other more inspirational ones?
Occasionally, we do take pleasure in learning something we never thought would interest us, when we find obligations to be quite delightful.
For instance, I was very skeptical about blogging for many years, failing to recognize its potential, thinking about it only in terms of some kind of online diaries, and wondering why would I want to write about my daily life for everyone to read, and who would actually be reading it. Well, now it’s a very different story. It’s one of those things that I was wrong about and very glad to having my thinking box widened.
Being a mother was always at the bottom of my list for Goals In This Life. Ha, you should see me now – I couldn’t wait to come back home to my little daughter from my recent business trip to New York, leaving the city, with all its places to see, on the same day I finished my work there.
I constantly find myself learning new things – at work, in life, from books, from blogs/sites. Sometimes I get tired of learning, pondering why do I always have to learn something, will it ever end, would it be possible to one day just use the knowledge that I’ve already acquired in this life without having to learn anything else for at least awhile? But more often I can’t wait to find time for learning all those numerous things that I want to know more about.
I wonder why do we learn? Do we learn because it comes with our survival instinct? We have to learn to survive in this world driven by the insane competition in almost every aspect of our lives? Or do we learn because we simply must feed our brains with a daily knowledge of something new, otherwise our brains will die from the idle starvation?
Why do you learn? What are you leaning about today? What do you want to learn about tomorrow? Share with me your thoughts, let’s inspire each other with the knowledge that each of us has.
