"The most beautiful thing in the world
is the conjunction of learning and inspiration."

~ Musician, Wanda Landowski

Your action for today
is to deliberately learn something new-
-such as a new word or a new computer program.
But whatever you learn: take action...
and put it to work for you!

Good morning Thomas. Learning without action may be entertainment on the positive side and a waste of time on the negative side. Enjoy your day.

The action for today is easy since I learn something new each and every day without even trying, haha.

The idea of not learning something new every day is quite foreign to me.  My Mother said - often - When you're through learning - you're through.  She was right!  As always!! LOL

Hi Thomas- love this quote. We can, for example, learn a word a day but unless you use it soon, it's doubtful you'll remember it.

While I believe education is a very valuable asset.  I also believe you need to marry it to motivation in order for there to be success.

Thomas, I agree with you! Education is one of the essential things in our lives. As a student, I must tell you that's also one of the hardest ones. But if you treat it as shown in your post - it's excellent! I often use this source to get help with my study paper, and their explanation helps me not burn out of education. I hope universities will understand the importance of the mental condition of students and start to take care of it. I'll never become a great specialist if you hated education before. Thank you for this post. It motivates me. 😊
