Self Learning - A lifelong commitment

"Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death"Albert Einstein.

Einstein is never wrong it seems. It is an undisputed fact that lifelong learning is one of the best ways to improve your life and your career. Self learning can enrich your knowledge every day. We learn a lot form our friends and family and in these difficult times, we find ourselves lacking in those face to face conversations. We must therefore seek either virtual platforms to chat ( such as those offered by Optimumchallenge.org ) or we turn to websites for self learning. Two that I use often are BBC future, which provides something different: a home for slowing down, delving deep and shifting perspectives. You’ll find stories here on almost every topic that matters. Psychology. Food. Climate change. Health. Social trends. Technology. Through evidence-based analysis, original thinking, and powerful storytelling, BBC futurelooks a lot at the hidden ways that the world is changing – and provides solutions for how to navigate it.

The other great find for this week is wikiwand, which is the slick new interface for wikipedia. It is a much more user friendly interface ( especially for students). Give it a try wikiwand.com

More self learning links coming soon!
