I don’t just mean reading a magazine article a couple of minutes every day. I mean proper study, whether for fun or interest.
This means that it would have to be a particular topic or group of topics, so that you in time develop specialised knowledge.
I for example work as a filing clerk in a small firm. However, I’m currently studying to be an accountant, so eventually I’ll be able to take a set of exams privately and (with some luck) qualify.
A dude I know in the firm is training to be a lawyer, so every lunch hour and pretty much every square break he gets, he seems to hit the books.
I’m not quite so zealous, but I’d say that for the past two months I’ve been at it for an average of two hours per day. Obviously the rest of my time is taken up by work (and the occasional play).
Trend looks set to continue, even though in school I was one of the, shall we say, less interested students.
How about you guys?
