Learning is most enjoyable when we get to participate in the process. Asking questions, sharing opinions, studying new books, and building things with our hands all help us actively learn. A rewarding way to learn is to solve a problem that we see. We can use creativity to brainstorm ideas, explore various solutions, and test out our designs. Our first attempts may not work, but with each attempt, we can improve.
Goal setting is one strategy that we can use to improve ourselves. When we dream big and imagine our future selves, we can identify areas for growth. It is best to break down goals into little steps. For example, if you wanted to set a goal to swing across the entire length of monkey bars, you should probably start by climbing up the ladder.
People can trust us to solve problems and learn for ourselves when we show that we are responsible. Being responsible means that people can depend on us and that we keep promises that we make. A responsible person doesn’t blame others or make excuses. Our learning is most enjoyable when we take responsibility for it.
