Learning to Learn Again


“You live a new life for every language you speak. If you only know one language, you live only once” – Czech proverb.

I personally love to learn a third language, but this writing is not limited to learning of languages but it is to emphasize again the importance of being open-minded and honing the attitude of constant learning.
Seriously, for every new skill you learn, there is an expression of life that is different from when you had just every other skill you have learned and when you have not learned the skills.

If you are not a musician, there is a world that you are not aware of its existence. When you become a musician, this world becomes open to you and the expression of your life becomes flavored sweetly so more than when you were not a musician.

Now that you are a musician, the more instruments you learn (not necessarily to perfection) the more outlets you have for the expression of your music and life.

The more you become the more ‘version’ of you there is; and the ‘more of you’ there is, the more lives you can significantly affect. Since this is not just about others, the more you become the more you can become; and this because you are not limited to or by just one way to see issues of life.

Just like lot of travelling leads to exposure, learning new things leads to new ways of doing things and various ways of reasoning out solutions to problems, of which there are often too many.
