Learning is not compulsory but neither is survival.*
(Edwards Deming)

We are learning creatures.

We can learn our way out of just about anything.

I don’t mean gaining the information and knowledge to be able to tackle our greatest life issues, but beyond these, we find ourselves to be producers of information and knowledge, emerging from our willingness to jump into the playfulness of learning that is available every day and throughout our lives.

The informal learning that happens when we get a few books together, connect to people who fascinate us, use walks for reflecting, identify some things we’d love to do and pull out a journal and a pen.  There are lots of ways but these are a few sound starters.

(*Edwards Deming, quoted in Jay Cross’ Informal Learning.)
