One of the things I really enjoy is learning new things or learning to do things I already know even better. The book of Proverbs tells us that an openness to new things and a passion for learning is a key to gaining wisdom for life. Today, there really is no excuse for not learning because there are so many ways to learn and grow. Personal growth can come from experience, mentors, or training. Another way is through reading. Through the minimal cost of a book, you gain the opportunity to glean on what is often a lifetime of learning from an expert in their field.
There are two series of books that are fun and educational to read. They have books on a wide variety of topics and they're very comprehensive.
1. First, there is the DUMMIES range of books. Check out their web site for a full list of topics that they have books on. I just finished reading 'Quickbooks for Dummies.' I use the Quickbooks software program to help my dad manage his book business. I've been using it for years but I learned heaps of new thingsand time-saving tips through this book.
2. Then there are the IDIOTS guides. Their web site has a huge list of topics that have been written about.
Come on ... you might feel like a dummy or an idiot in a particular area of knowledge but you don't have to stay that way :)
