It’s hot outside

By CreativeWings, 11 August, 2016

It’s that time of year when it’s just too hot to actually do anything other than stay home and binge watch your favorite shows. However, it is also a great time to learn something new, read something great or see something inspiring.

In the same amount of time that you’d use to watch an episode or two, without leaving your comfy chair, you can devote time to your own growth.

Wouldn’t it be great to go to sleep tonight knowing you gave yourself just a bit of the attention that you give to the lives and pursuits of others? This is the perfect time to take those first steps towards achieving one of the goals on your life list.

Here are 3 great ways to get started:

Want to learn about business, technology or creative skills? Check out Lynda.com (In NY, you can log on for free if you have an active NY Public Library card and your PIN.) This is one of the greatest and easiest resources out there.

Speaking of Public Libraries, most of them now have free downloads of eBooks with your valid library card. Most people aren’t aware of this, and it’s a great resource.

Skillshare.com has great courses in tons of creative ways to express yourself.  They often offer a 3-month membership for new members at an incredible rate.
