What’s New?

The hardest thing about learning something new might not be trying to understand it, but being receptive to the opportunity to learn it after paying so many dues for the knowledge already acquired. It's not necessarily just an "ego thing" (or at least not to those who look for more than simplistic answers) because an evaluation process is, or should be, going on.

For example, is learning something new (extensively) simply because it's new, worth the time? It's been observed that too many things are given cursory attention these days.

How does or should new knowledge affect your current knowledge?

Learning new things is a necessity and training to absorb as much and as quickly as possible is an undeniable advantage. That's the tricky part: "as much and as quickly", for some things you absorb may very well dictate that you discard them or prior data quickly!

The important thing is keeping motivated to keep accumulating knowledge evaluating based on content alone; not necessarily on personalities or style of presentation (unless they absolutely impede understanding, in which case it's only logical to pursue another course). I delayed learning something (drumming-related) for more than 10 years because I felt I could not deal with the teaching method. So, with this example alone, I reject the generalization that age hardens perspective.

I suppose it's unavoidable that some things will need to evolve at their own pace. At this point in time I've decided only the acquisition of knowledge is important and nothing I can control will impede that. I'm not saying I know what you should do, I'm only encouraging you to examine why you may resist learning new things and what the cost might be.

It's a cliche but Time Marches On.

I also manage a niche site and if you’re ever interested in doing some visitor writing for me please feel free to let me know, i’m always look for people to check out my website. Please stop by and leave a comment sometime!

  2. Amazing piece of content, this is very similar to a site that I have. Please check it out sometime and feel free to leave me a comenet on it and tell me what you think. Im always looking for feedback.

  3. Outstanding site, where did you come up with the knowledge in this blog post? I’m glad I found it though, ill be checking back soon to see what other articles you have.

  4. This is a good blog post, I was wondering if I could use this piece of content on my website, I will link it back to your website though. If this is a problem please let me know and I will take it down right away.

  5. Thanks, but Sunnydrivesuites.com is confusing to me. All I see are lists of hyperlinks which
    (as far as the few I’ve clicked on) lead to other lists. If I could see the website you plan
    to use it on, and with proper link back to this Diverse Elements blog entry, I could give a more
    definitive answer.

  6. Thanks. I’m unsure what your site is about. The text seems to be about acupuncture but the grammar doesn’t
    flow well. Your site has no design applied to it and has numerous links to other sites, which I don’t quite understand.
    It seems like you really have to be “on the inside track” to understand the direction of it.
    How for example, given the layout of edepc1.com, would you use some of my content?
    Under ordinary circumstances, with the proper acknowledgment, I would say yes, but I don’t think this fits that
    category.

  7. Hello Darron,
    re: RSS feeds…there is a subscribe button just below the header or on the sidebar (depending on the theme). I will try to place it prominently near the top.

    How do you like DE now? 😉

  8. Easily, the post is actually the greatest on this deserving topic. I agree with your conclusions and will thirstily look forward to your coming updates. . . . .

  9. Have you ever considered adding more videos to your blog posts to keep the readers more entertained? I mean I just read through the entire article of yours and it was quite good but since I’m more of a visual learner,I found that to be more helpful well let me know how it turns out!

  10. I thought it was going to be some boring old site, but I’m glad I visited. I will post a link to this site on my blog. I am sure my visitors will find that very useful.

  11. I can see that you are an expert at your field! I am launching a website soon, and your information will be very useful for me.. Thanks for all your help and wishing you all the success in your business.
