Observe Everything! The World Is Your Classroom!

One of the most important skills one can have is the skill of observation. A true self learner has the ability to learn from anyone, in any situation, at any given time. Men and Women like Albert Einstein, Sir Isaac Newton, Malcolm X, Jane Goodall, and others did not just rely on what that had learned in books. They went out into the world to test what they had learned and noticed patterns and ideas that had yet to be discovered through the practice of observation. While you may not have an “aha” moment that allows you to create a law about gravity like the Apple falling on Sir Isaac’s Newtons head, you may be surprised what you learn by observing the world around you. Understand––the world is your classroom.
