Time for the kids to go back to school and start learning again. Funny how some of us can’t wait to get out of school and start with our own career, life, etc. But do we ever stop learning? Sure we learn about life and the ins and outs of what it takes to raise a family. We learn about a career. But what are some ways we can keep learning to better ourselves? To learn about a hobby? To learn more about our career and how we grow as professionals? Learn about personal development and living a well rounded life like this website teaches. No matter what it is you want to learn or when there are countless resources to help you learn.
People can now get equal to a college degree with free resources thanks to the Internet. We have free resources that will change the way people get an education after high school. Colleges will need to reinvent themselves to prove their worth at the rate these alternate methods are growing.
This week we will just touch on some pretty basic tools that people are using these days that are pretty common. These are tools that can increase your knowledge in a matter of hours or even minutes. Just think what a few short minutes a day over the course of a year would do for you.
Three Ways to keep learning without going back to school are:
BLOGS – Blogs are some of the best ways to better educate yourself. All you have to do is go to google.com and do a search on the topic of your choice. Maybe it’s hooked on wooded boats (hookedonwoodenboats.com) or even podcasting (Podcastanswerman.com) or Personal Development (No need to list a website you already found this one by reading this article right here, LOL). Blogs are 99.9% of the time free and I am willing to bet you can find just about any topic and people who have the same interests as you.
BOOKS – Yes sure books do help and have been around for centuries. But what has not been around for centuries are things like the Kindle. You can download a book of your choice anywhere and anyplace you want on any topic you can imagine. Sign up for amazon’s prime membership and you can even check out books to read for free. One way I have found that works well is say you want to get an MBA but you can’t afford a graduate program. Go to the University of choice and do a search in their online book store for the courses that are part of that degree. The books required for each course listed. You can download to your kindle and you can read the exact same book the students are. Powerful tool and can help you get the education you need if the finances are not there.
SEMINARS – Seminars are also a great way to get an education. These are anywhere from a few hours long to several days long. They can range from free to several thousands of dollars. The topics are also just as wide. Kelby Training offers photography lessons from popular photographers at a fraction of the cost. A growing area in seminars are online seminars. We currently have several in development so be sure to come back and visit often. These will be free for the people who attend live so if your interested in attending be sure to visit back here often.
