"Using Technology to My Advantage" may be the easiest lifelong learning tool for me to follow. I have a long history of using new tools in the workplace, dating back to the manual typewrtier. For those who don't know, that means non-electric. We had to exercise our pinky fingers back then! I had the very first Tandy personal computer which was introduced by Radio Shack in the Seventies. The only difficulty I have now with new technologies is the cost of upgrading and the appalling contribution old hardware makes to our growing trash heaps.
The first lifelong learning habit - Begin With an End in Mind - is probably the hardest habit for me to follow. The reason for this aimlessness is I often pursue a new interest with no goal in mind beccause I just love to learn about different things or how to do something new. Although that may cause me to be a Jack-of-All-Trades and Master-of-None, at times I find myself better prepared for a new pursuit than I would be otherwise.
