A great question from colleague Karynne Courts of Values Connection: What makes learning satisfying?
My response: “I love ideas and concepts, and its really satisfying when I can put a concept into action and see how it works. One memorable one by Stephanie Burns was a twist on using a Timeline and your “bucket list”: Choose an age you’d like to live to, then divide your timeline from now to then into decades and spread your life goals across the decades.
I found all my goals were in the same decade – my thirties – and nothing after that. It really freed me up to put more big goals on the list – like completing an Ironman when I was into my forties. Or learning astronomy in my sixties. Or seeing the world switch to 100% renewable energy usage before I die!”
