Learning is not attained by chance; it must be sought with ardor and diligence.

—Abigail Adams (by Benjamin Blyth; Public Domain)

We do, indeed, learn a lot by mere chance as we go through our lives. But how much of that, after our formal education, has been by design rather than simply what we pick up along the way? Focused, concentrated learning throughout our lifetime will not only give us wisdom guided by intelligence, it will also help keep our most important tool—our mind—sharp and vigilant.

We have so many wonderful options today that weren’t available at any point throughout history. From searching for a book online and being able to read it within minutes on a device, to platforms such as Udemy, Coursera, Lynda.com, and The Great Courses which allow us a focused learning experience on a specific topic, we can learn virtually anything from wherever we are.

Even if just for thirty minutes per day, commit to increasing your mental prowess by studying some topic of interest. You will be amazed at the long-term benefits which will follow.

A Great Book

A truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity and once more in old age, as a fine building should be seen by morning light, at noon and by moonlight.
