You want to have a nice time on this earth?
There is one thing that will help you to do just that.
It’s called learning.
Learning from books and learning from doing. Both are valuable and complement each other.
I just can’t imagine my life without reading, I read all the fricking time with reckless abandon.
I read in the toilet and on the way to the a toilet.
I read before I go to sleep and first thing in the morning. I read paper books, kindle books, and blogs. In fact I sometimes have to make myself stop reading to eat.
I don’t understand people who don’t read.
I read mostly to learn. So it’s a targeted reading. I will unlikely read Hunger Games, because what will that book teach me?
I’m not against pop culture books, but I will leave that to… others due to my general lack of inclination towards herd activities (no offense to anybody, I did that to get more comments:)
Back to learning.
Learning via books and/or doing is fun. One of the greatest pleasures in life. My ex-girlfriend proved that. She once read a newspaper during our intimate moment (I did this one for comments too;)
OK. Learning should go together with action and creating your own stuff. I don’t want to be viewed as a geek or all words no action type of guy.
But in order for me to act intelligently I’ve got to learn.
Recently I’ve learned a lot of CSS code which you can see on my blog. Hopefully it looks good in Internet Explorer. Let me know if it doesn’t. But I really hope you are not using IE.
What have you learned recently? Do you also read in the toilet?
