This is the penultimate instalment in our series of 10 steps to upgrade your brain.
- Learn new things
With the rapid pace of technological and societal change, it is no longer sufficient to rely purely on formal education and college degrees when seeking employment. We all need to be learning all the time as we adapt to changing conditions in the job, career, and business markets.
But lifelong learning is not only important for our career, it builds new skills and improves skills that you already have
As we grow older we all feel like time is passing quicker. One of the reasons is that we do not learn or experience new things. If you think back over the year, what stood out for you? I am sure it was novel experiences that slowed down time. Our brains were made to be stimulated by novel experiences, so yes to prevent being bored to death by life, keep on learning and have new experiences as much as possible.
