“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” ~Zig Ziglar
Motivation to keep learning? No different.
How to Stay Motivated to Learn?
We know that the day we stop learning is the day we stop growing. Some even go further to say you’ll start dying the day you stop learning. But how can we stay motivated to learn all life long?
I am not a master nor guru, but an ordinary person who has found a way to stay motivated to learn. Here are my two tips to help you maintain your motivation to learn.
TIP #1: Writing
Writing does a lot of great things. One of them is learning. Simply put, writing keeps us learning. We write something after we have learned it. So before we write, we learn. We learn so that we can write.
So if you make it a habit to write daily or twice or three times per week, your writing habit will be a good source of motivation for you to keep learning.
TIP #2: Learning to teach
A teacher? Great! That means you already have a good source of motivation to learn. What I often see is that teachers learn better than students.
Not a teacher? No problem. You can look for ways to teach without being a teacher. Blogging can be your classroom. Your family members, your friends, strangers you meet in the street… can be your students.
You just need to find a way.
When you know you will be teaching, you will be motivated to learn and you will learn much better!
