Last week my favorite new information was about Rice Genome from an article in Los Angeles Times. A genome, I learned, is a completely mapped structure of a living organisms DNA. Not only did I learn what a genome is, I also learned about significance of this genome and impact this scientific evidence may have on entire world. Not simply for consumers of rice, for consumers of ALL agricultural products. This fact is amazingly huge.
Until I read article, I did not even know what a genome was!
Merriem Webster teaches us that learning to gain knowledge or understanding of or skill in by study, instruction, or experience.
It is to be facilitated with respect and continued to be cultivated throughout life. To learn is to know. To understand. To be able to integrate lessons and apply them to your life with both effectiveness and efficiency.
Mrs. Parker had words right. We do have abillity to learn something new everyday. The piece she did not understand, she did not know, is that to truly learn everyday requires that we gain knowledge and understanding. It is not just about being a repository of facts.
It is about using those facts to passionately connect with world and people around you.
Passion Activator: For next three days, scan newspaper and pick out an article or two that interest you. Look at article not from a perspective of a collection of facts that are not connected to your life and your work.
Instead, ask yourself to create two or three ways article connects to your life and your work. Ask yourself questions such as: "What solutions does this article point to in my business?" "What are similarities with this story and a particular situation in my life?" and "What is it that called me to select this article above myriad of other articles published today?"
I guarantee you will begin to learn truly learn something new. And use that knowledge. Today and everyday.
