Sometimes we deliberately shy away from performing tasks we have had little or no experience with in the past. We may argue there are others more capable and they can save us the bother of learning new skills.
While it is obvious there are times when we must accept our limitations and call on an expert, there are also many occasions when a little knowledge can save us considerable time and money.
Many of us use a variety of excuses to avoid change and experience new learning concepts. Sometimes, we feel embarrassed being seen making mistakes as we acquire new skills.
Sometimes, if we are prepared to admit it, we are just being lazy and deliberately close our minds to getting involved in new ideas and new ways of doing things.
Learning keeps our mind active and there is no doubt this will enhance our enjoyment of life. ‘Learn something new everyday’ is a practice we should all take into our old age.
