【YOMU-SAPLI】★"How to learn from everything."

Dear Readers,

Are you still learning new words?
No? Wow, then you must be a dictionary by now.
Joking aside. Surely we can even learn new words as adults.


"My boss told me that you should study something.
But I don't know what I should study.
Sometimes I look up some information online and teach it to my staff.
On the other hand, it's different from getting some licenses
related to my job so I don’t know what I should do."

"I can see that you gain some knowledge
when you don’t know something
but then you just tell your staff about that.
I think you should learn to absorb the whole experience.
Learn everything in daily life, take ownership of the experience,
you should have a sense of learning from whatever you see.
So I think that was what your boss was saying."


We often think that to study is to gain skills or knowledge,
so people think they should go to study somewhere.
But I think that isn’t the end of leaning yet.

I’d say, when I learn something,
I think about how to teach it to someone at the same time.
If you would do that, your capacity for absorption would totally change.
For me, my blogging is a tool for trying to express things I experienced.

For example, when I go to museums,
I rent the audio guide to write my review
so I have to learn about the articles a lot. 

When I watch movies, I haven’t finished by just watching that.
Before blogging, I read a lot of reviews of others
and I try to find out what I didn’t catch in that film.
Then it’ll be more fun to watch the next movie.

When I travel somewhere, I observe things deeply
so I can write my travel diary.

To write my English newsletter leads me
to improve my Japanese ability of expression.

That is to say, having opportunities to output makes learning deeper .
As if you exhale deeply and then you can take big breaths.
It’s a natural phenomenon.

Since I have this cycle, my life has totally changed.


Have a great week☆彡

Thanks for reading!
