This could be anything you’ve been wanting to learn. You could learn to use your Instant Pot; learn to sign up at the local library and use their online borrowing system; learn to do something new with knitting or with your sewing machine; learn a new language! It would be cool to look back at 2020 and realize we’ve all learned 12 new things. I can’t tell you how many times recently I’ve said “I don’t know how to do that!” We don’t have to be proficient at it — we just need to give it the old school girl try. Because I’m thinking about my spinning, I’m also thinking we could include “get better” so, while I’ve taken classes and had spinning wheels for years, I am not good so if I could spin like a pro by the end of the year, I’d be thrilled.
Also, you do not have to master the technique.
A reader suggested American Sign Language and I think that’s something I’m going to work on. Obviously, I am not going to learn it all in one month and, since I’ll be learning online, by the end of the year, I probably will not be proficient but one thing for sure . . I’ll know more sign language by this time next year than I know now.
It may be (probably definitely!) harder to learn as we get older but not learning shouldn’t be an option. I hope as we read what others are learning, we may get more inspired to learn more and may realize there are things we want to learn that we never knew we wanted to learn.
