Why Do We Learn?

This list is from a brainstorming session at our house today. I thought it was worth sharing!

Why do we learn?

We learn in order to….

Try new skills
Appreciate the past
Look at the future
Gain wisdom
So we can teach others
Practice paying attention
Gain patience
Have our questions answered
Ask new questions
Have new questions answered
Ask more questions!
Try new skills
Help us later in life with jobs
Practice listening
Try hard things
So we won’t be bored
Exercise our brains
Exercise our hearts
Exercise our bodies
Enjoy new ideas
Enjoy beauty and order
Learn from failing
Learn from succeeding
Practice following directions
So we don’t keep making the same mistakes
Have something to do
Appreciate how people different from us do things
