Do you ever get to that point where you have so many cool tech gadgets and computer things that you really don't know what to do with them? Well I do. Sometimes I find myself trying to think of things to do even though there are tons of things to do right in front of my face. I have invested lots of money in my electronics and computers and I haven't even given them the use they deserve. I could do so many things with the electronics I have. I could program, write a book, design things, edit videos, build web pages and so much more. I can't figure out why I love these things so much that I can't find just one subject to focus on long enough to make it worth it. I really want to get into developing for OSX and iOS but I can't seem to put enough effort into the subject to learn anything.
When I was in school I learned a lot because I was forced to learn. I think my problem is that I don't force myself to learn therefore I don't learn what I want to learn. I think it really comes down to self control, which by the way I don't have much of! It seems that over the years I have learned a lot about technology but I can't figure out how I learned it if I wasn't forced to learn it. Maybe I was actually interested enough back then when I didn't "need" to be forced to learn it. Does that mean I will never learn anything again since nobody is forcing me to learn it? Of course not.
I really want to learn so many things and I know I will never be able to know them all but I can sure try. That is why I have the little saying I came up with:
"I don't know a lot about everything...But I do know...A little bit about a lot of things".
Kind of just works doesn't it? I thought so. Well I better get some sleep. Maybe that is why I can't stay focused on learning things...Sleep? Well lets give it a try!
Good Night Digital World!
