Learning made easy

With internet, learning anything is so easy now!  We just need to remind ourselves to search it online and reference with a few other websites with similar topic then summarize and arrive into the best solution and methods.  THANK YOU! 🙂

Example, a sudden craving to make Eggs Benedict crept up this morning and since I don’t really know how to poach an egg and make Hollandaise sauce, I searched online for YouTube videos, spend 3-4 mins watching the 2 videos and discovered how EASY it is to make them!  Coming from Asia, we dont really make sauces like that so it seemed like a daunting task at first but it turned out otherwise!  Hahaha… much like how I go around telling my non-Asian friends how easy it is to make Chinese food. 

As a kid, most of the information came from parents, friends, relatives and school-teachers and textbooks.  I was an inquisitive child and often didn’t get my questions answered and it didn’t really hit me to go look things up in the library (Ok.  I’m a little slow in that area…durr… or maybe I was just plain lazy.  Hahaha…).

Hence, now that we have the world of information at our finger tips, I need to constantly remind myself that I’m in control of my own learning.  Learning is a continuous process in every aspect of our life.  We learn how to grow up, to be a teenager, to be an adult then maybe a parent, a grandparent and eventually learn how to deal with our own death.  To me, this is the beauty of life…

Learn from those who’ve been there done that…

I came across an article in an airline magazine today about help from senior volunteers who gives an advice or 2 to anyone who writes in to them.  Its called the Elder Wisdom Circle.  I think this is a really cool idea because it gives the older folks a chance to share their experiences with the younger ones (no age limit) and to make their time more well spent because they are helping someone else who needs a listening ear or a word of advice.  

Questions are asked via email, hence there’ll be no embarrasement or awkwardness… just pure simple answers based on what was asked with no other considerations, etc.  The only obstacle will be that the older folks will have to learn how to use the computer which I believe is quite a daunting task to many…
