When my children returned from school, one question I would ask was “What did you learn today.” Years have passed since my kids were school age, and I don’t remember any of the answers they gave. However, it seems like I recall many times their answers would be “nothing.” I’d press for more information, but they knew, and I knew, I was only trying to make conversation and to show some interest in their lives.
The question comes back to me now, and even though no one is waiting at home to ask me what I learned in the school of life, I find it’s not a bad idea to ask the question of myself. “What did I learn today?” Quite often our first response is “nothing.” If we dig a little deeper, we might discover we did learn something, or at least we should have. Lessons come to us regularly, but we don’t always learn from our mistakes. So, the lessons keep coming.
Learning takes time, but it helps if we review what we’ve learned in the past. Sometimes, before we can learn something new, we have to unlearn something that was either wrong, or simply didn’t work for us in our particular situation.
