You’ll start making connections that you wouldn’t have made. You’ll start relating ideas that others wouldn’t think to relate. You’ll see things that you would have missed. You’ll hear a lyric and know it’s a reference to an idea from a book from a long time ago. You’ll see a pattern that relates mathematically and to interior design and in your garden. You’ll fall in love with life every day because you’ll get it at a deeper level.
Learn to enrich your life and connect more profoundly, not only with others, but with yourself, and with life itself. Learn because when your appetite for learning is whetted, you’ll never stop learning, and the more you learn, the more you’ll want to learn (it’s like traveling in that way), and everything you learn will help you appreciate everything even more. It becomes a positive feedback loop that enhances and amplifies your life.
This is the fundamental way to love your life and find happiness. Learn. Learn what you must learn. Learn what you want to learn. Learn what think you want to learn. Learn what you don’t think you’ll need. Learn because it benefits you now and later and in ways that you can’t possibly imagine. Learn because it offers perspective, range, and optionality.
