Thing #2 - 7 1/2 habits of lifelong learners

So what has changed over the last 18months?

Not much!! Obviously, I'm still struggling with "finishing" things. Here I am, starting again after only formally getting up to Thing #11 last time.

I especially appreciate now however, habit # 7 - teach and mentor others, as a good way to reinforce my own learning. I take this not only in the stand up and deliver kind of teaching, but also the sharing and collaboration that happens in the happy library workroom. Quite often, by sharing something that I have found with one or more colleagues, at least one will have a unique way to make use of the find ... or ask something about it to prompt me to investigate further.

This follows to in preparing for conference presentations etc. By going the extra step by making the effort to exhibit your wares, there is a payoff in an incentive to do better, or find our a little more than you normally would, and also be in the position to receive feedback, suggestions or encouragement from peers/colleagues around Australia, and even the world.
