Learning Should Be Hard

Learning should be hard. Embrace it.

It’s what keeps your brain young. Pick a skill, any skill and learn it. Spanish, piano, guitar, anything mentally taxing. When it’s slow, hard, not really fun, smile. Smile because your brain is getting a workout. It’s getting stronger. Myelination is afoot. Your brain is an energy hog. It accounts for only 2% of your body weight, yet burns 20% of your bodies energy. Put it to work. Hard stuff gets easier and the paradigm shifts. The old hard is the new easy. You move up a level. You get better. It doesn’t matter what you choose. Go learn something new.
