Today I Learn… I make a point of learning something new everyday. This is what I learn each day

“A promise is a promise, no matter how small it is”

Filed under: Emotional Intelligence — admin @ 12:31 am

Ten days ago I started, for the second time this year, to get serious about one of the promises that I made on my 2012 New Year Resolution. Gee, after a big chunk of the year has gone, right?

One of the items on my resolution is to pick up my German language so that I can read spiegel in the original. I included this also for the benefit of brain health.

Memory makes up a large part of our intelligence. In fact, a sure sign of mental decline is the weakening of our ability to retain information. Hence, a good way of preserving it is to try to learn something new and commit it to memory. I am glad I pick it up again and hope I will stick to the end of the year, not as long as it seems though.

On another related or unrelated matter, one of my relatives promised July of 2011 to pay for his cell phone with his earned income once he found a job. He found one not long ago and intended to keep his promise. Good for him!
