Addicted to Learning

There's so much to learn and so many ways to learn these days. E-courses are everywhere. Some are free, some are cheap or pretty reasonably priced. We can also watch free TED videos and read articles from a whole range of sources. Twitter takes us off to lots of new websites. There's so much to learn and so little time to learn it all.

I think it's easy to get addicted to learning, to always have to be reading or looking at something new. You can do it on your lap top or your phone even. There's no excuse not to do it in every spare minute.

Life long learning is a good thing though isn't it? It's good to keep on learning, finding out about things, questioning and challenging our beliefs and increasing our knowledge. It can be fulfilling to complete a course or watch videos and read lots of interesting information. Surely there's no reason not to register for everything and just learn all day. It's just that sometimes the day can disappear...

Probably the only problem then is when we become a bit too driven, a bit too focused on our lap top and become out of balanced. We might find ourselves not interacting with others, staying indoors rather than going outside. We might also find ourselves becoming a bit obsessed and overwhelmed by having so much to do. The enjoyment might start to turn into something else - something less enjoyable.
It might even start to become like an addiction.

So while learning is a good thing and no-one would suggest it isn't, like anything, we can have too much of it. Finding a balance can help, prioritising what we want to focus on, setting some limits on how much time we spend on the computer, finding ways to connect with others when learning and getting outside into the real world might keep learning fun and enjoyable.
