If you had $100 to invest in self-education every month, where would you allocate the money?

Answer:

You don’t really need more than $100 a month to self-educate. Here is what I would do:

– read biographies and books about any topics that interest you. Most books are fairly cheap on Kindle or you can sit in bookstore cafes and read them.

– draw and/or paint. This gets the neurons firing in areas that have been lying dormant for awhile.

– by cheap pads (waiter pads, for instance), and just free form write down ideas, observations, thoughts of things you want to try.

– go to a museum and try to find at least ten things you didn’t know before that excite you.

– go to at least one networking event. Or dance class. Or something you never would’ve thought of trying. Just one. Don’t pressure yourself into suddenly doing kickboxing ten times a week.

– study yoga. And not just the physical exercises but the reasons behind each one. The reason a move twists a certain way, breathes a certainway, the history of that move throughout thehistory of yoga, the reasons for doing the physical exercises.
