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 so we can avoid change and experience new learning concepts.  Sometimes, we might feel embarrassed being seen making mistakes as we acquire new skills.

Quite often, If we are prepared to admit it, we just deliberately close our minds to getting involved in any new ideas and new ways of achieving outcomes.

Learning keeps our mind open and active and there is no doubt this will enhance our enjoyment of life.  ‘Learning something new every day’ is a practice we could all take into our old age.

I’m Peter Mack and that’s life.
