When we focus on the next task at hand, we tend to create a little box around us. We forget just how much we don't know and what we haven't had the chance to experience.-
That box may be comfortable, but you need to remember the vast world outside of it.
Doing everything there is to do is impossible but getting into the habit of learning is not. Consistently gaining new information will help you think outside the box, so to speak.
1. Knowledge Is Power and Influence
Any information you gain can open new doors for you and land you awesome opportunities.
The worst that can happen is that you never find any use for that information. I find that very unlikely, though.
Let's put things into perspective. You get into the habit of learning and expand your knowledge each day. In a few years, you may know more about an industry than those working in it. That means that you have new job opportunities.
Just think how good you'll be at trivia games!
On a more serious note, though, knowing how a car works, for example, may get you out many tight spots.
There are countless ways learning will improve your life.
2. The Habit of Learning Trains Your Mind
School often seems like it just crams information into your head. A lot of the stuff you study won't be terribly useful in life. However, that's not the point.
Elementary learning helps because your brain will understand how to actually learn.
The mind is just like a muscle: The more you use it, the stronger it becomes. You'll face situations that require you to take in a lot of new information in a short period. Thanks to school and your own efforts, you'll be prepared.
If you get into the habit of learning, many challenges will be a breeze to you. You'll be ready to face more adversity.
3. You'll Find New Things to Love
People don't innately know their hobbies, likes, and dislikes. You learn them by experiencing the world, by trying new things.
I'm sure that you already have a hobby or more, but I'm also sure that you'd have many more if you tried everything.
The habit of learning will lead you to new experiences. You'll find that some of them are lovely.
It doesn't stop there either. Let's say that you get serious about literature and try new authors. You could very well find the best author or book your ever read. Only because you searched and learned.
Simply put, the habit of learning will bring more joy into your life.
4. Your Knowledge Will Become a Bridge to Other People.
Being capable is great and hobbies are beautiful, but much of our happiness stems from our relationships. Well, learning helps with those too.
I'm going to draw up a little scenario for you:
You're taking a Spanish course because you always liked the language. The teacher asks you to pair up and speak with your partner.
Your partner happens to be a handsome fellow and despite your limited knowledge of Spanish, you hit it off. You two decide to go for a coffee after class.
Fast forward two weeks and you're happily in a relationship.
I know it's a very specific example, but the possibilities are quite limitless. Getting out of your comfort zone and trying new things is a great way of making new relationships.
5. Knowledge Inspires
The last thing I want to mention is the effect that the habit of learning has on your creativity. Our experiences enable us to create new things.
Reading a good book can determine you to write one yourself. Studying psychology can help you come up with your own findings. I can keep giving examples, but you get my point.
