Scott Bakula plays Dwayne Pride, one of the main characters in NCIS: New Orleans. Pride can often be heard telling his team, “Go. Learn Things.” For some reason, that phrase really hit home with me during one of the last episodes of the first season. It really hit me as a call to action, not only for the characters in the show, but for me personally. In a way, a lightbulb went off.
I’m passionate about lifelong learning, but in past year or so, I feel like I haven’t done much learning. When I heard Pride say, “Go. Learn Things,” I realized that I had to make learning a priority again. The point of my blog has always been to have a place where I can synthesize what I’ve learned, and also share thoughts on all kinds of topics. I haven’t blogged nearly as often as I should, but I’m about to change that.
My library’s new fiscal year begins tomorrow. One of my goals for the coming year is to blog twice per month about things I’ve learned. I have a few ideas in mind for what I might blog about, such as: using Microsoft Publisher, weeding library materials, content curation, and using Canva to create images.
Now that I’ve told the world my goal, the next step is to make it happen. Expect to see posts twice per month on things I've learned. I'll also post at other times on other topics that are dear to my heart, like scrapbooking, and running.
So, here’s to accountability. Stay tuned to see what I learn next!
