I consider myself a lifelong learner, so I’m always trying to acquire new knowledge. But I know that I need to work harder to grow and mature. When I was younger, I exerted more energy into this pursuit. Since I’ve been out of college, I apply a lot less energy to improving myself.
Over the past five years, I’ve only grown lazier. I haven’t published any new novels in two years. I haven’t read a single book (outside of what I taught in the classroom). And I haven’t completed any workout regimens.
It seems like a stretch to consider myself a lifelong learner when I’m not pushing myself to be my absolute best.
In my post about finding time to write, I mention the importance of making changes to grow. In other words, I know that I have to work harder if I want to be “the best me.” As a result, I’ve decided to read a novel. I also want to begin working out again within the next two weeks. And I have plans to rewrite the Barcode series. These are a few of my goals. I’m stacking goals on top of one another because I have a five-year goal to be my best.
These are only a few of my goals. I’m layering my objectives on top of one another because I have a five-year goal to be my best.
Are you a lifelong learner? What are your goals?
