Quoting Albert Einstein "Once you stop Learning, you start Dying". In the ever changing world, continuous learning is essential. As 2021 comes to an end and we eagerly wait for 2022, it is important to start the new year keeping in mind the goals for the rest of the year and look at ways in which we can improve ourselves and make us a better version of ourselves for the new year! Here are some ways to upgrade our skills or learn a new one -
Let me share with you some ways of learning you can do this year:
1. In Singapore, you can access the National library books from the comfort of your home on your laptop /Notepad/phone - Reading is one of the most skillful resource, it not only allows one to use reading as a stress-buster but also allows one to constantly do more value-addition in the everlasting learning experience. Having access to the national library books from the comfort of any device ensures one can read at anytime and anywhere, so instead of spending free time scrolling through endless tik-toks, one can devote some time to read some great books!
2. Secondly you can sign up for any of the skills future courses offered online and in person - Institutions, programs and colleges all across the world are providing individuals more and more access to courses from all fields to all age-groups. With the pandemic, the access to online courses has only increased and one can literally find something to learn for every field. Similarly, countries that are opening their institutions are now even offering in-person classes, both of which can help immensely to learn new skills!
3. If you are looking for global options, you can do certificate programs on Coursera, Udamy or even LinkedIn Learning - These 3 platforms of learning have been the most talked about platforms over the recent years because of the access to great courses from universities all over the world and being able to access these platforms from any device at any-time. Many people are taking more and more courses on these platforms not only as a way to learn more about things they find interesting but also as a way to build their portfolio in their respective fields/hobbies.
Seize the moment and make it worthy for a wonderful start to the new year.
Happy New Year :)
