Words about Learning: Toast

Small can be beautiful. You don’t need to expend a huge amount of effort or time to get something right. Take this post. I’ve put the toast under the grill and i need to have it finished by the time it’s done.

It’s so easy for the small slices of time to slip by, unnoticed and unloved. But we can achieve amazing small things as well as huge and time consuming ones. Giving feedback to someone, saying thank you, having an idea: none of these things take much time, but they’re all worthwhile.

We can learn in small chunks too: a degree takes three years, but you don’t need a degree for everything. You can learn a lot in ten minutes over a cup of tea. Why not try it today. Go to Wikipedia and type something that interests you. Satellites, caving, the history of tea. Learning doesn’t have to be focused or long, it can be short and fun. See what you find out before the toast burns.
