While I’d love to make this a rant about the system of education in India and how teaching and learning are not what they used to be, I think enough has been written on this subject. I love that no matter what our background, our age, our education is we can always learn and grow. This year, I’ve decided to spend a lot of time on learning and re-learning. I’ve invested more than usual in courses and books to upgrade my skills. But most of all I’m learning to choose.
Learning To Choose
During a break I took a couple of months , I began to re-think a lot of things. I’m teaching myself to make better choices. I’m learning
- to chose between what to care about and what not to care about.
- to make choices about where to spend my energy and where to conserve it.
- to appreciate the power of authentic connections and to decide which relationships are important to invest in and which are not.
- to open myself up to a lot of new ideas.
But the best thing that I am teaching myself to be STILL.
Teach us to care and not to care. Teach us to sit still.T S Elliot
