Please Read 1 in 20 Newsletters to Learn

Learn about any subject by subscribing to newsletters, Blogs or websites.

A write a daily newsletter, and I hope you do not read it daily.

I subscribe to 50-100  newsletters
--- I can "monitor" them all in about 10 minutes per day.

Learn

Generally, I do not learn diddle from CNN, BBC, or news channels, they are just exaggerations of gossip. They are written to make me angry, therefore I do not read them, because I want to learn how to live happily.

Scientific American sends me a Daily Digest

I read the Scientific American titles daily, I actually read only about 1 in 40, they truly are not very good, strangely so-called scientist are now writing exaggerations. But, 1 in 40 is rather good, well written and worth reading.

Instrucables

I get update from Instructables, I think maybe I read about 1 in 3 of them, I truly get a kick out of what they teach me to do. I learned the othe day how to melt my toothbrush, to make it hangable.

Conclusion

In my opinion, learning is not about reading, as much as it is about monitoring subjects. I only read about 1 in 20 of the newsletters sent to me.

Current events on CNN come and go, more or less gossip on steroids this is not learning, it is selling anger.

However, we all can learn about anything we want, if you want to read about bears, there is probably a newsletter. If you want to learn about how to knit, I am sure there is something to read.

Learning does not make me angry!

Life is good, and there are many paths to take, but it seems to me, that walking down path that make me angry should be avoided.
