Lesson of the day

Its a good practice to learn new stuff everyday little by little. There can be no better time to learn all at once, for there is infinite amount of knowledge to be gained. So, I feel "--- of the day" feeds (eg. Word of the day, Quote of the day, ...) to be very useful in this regard.

Having said that, here is an idea... How about composing our own private-list "Lesson of the day" or "A lesson a day"? Let me explain to you what this list means. We learn new stuff each day from that day's experience (pre-dominantly). Before the end of the day, we can spare a minute to jot down the one lesson that was learnt today. Having a list of just 1 lesson per day makes it more fun...

In my opinion, we get the following benefits...

  • Be aware of our mistakes, and hence the lessons learnt
  • The lesson gets registered firmly in our mind when we jot it down (putting it in words
  • Recall the lesson whenever needed
  • Hobby (like blogging)
  • Gives you the right to claim that you try to learn from your mistakes

Here are a few relevant quotes:
Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.
- Barry LePatner

Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.
- Vernon Sanders Law

Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.
- Aldous Huxley (1894 - 1963), "Texts and Pretexts", 1932

Do you agree with me? ? ?
