Lifelong Learning

I consider myself to be a lifelong learner already but the 7 1/2 Habits of Lifelong Learners training did give me some ideas of what I need to do to achieve specific goals. One of things I want to work on is being more comfortable with using flickr to document my programs. I guess the easiest habit for me is the first habit- "begin with an end in mind". I find it easy to come up with ideas for things and new skills I want to learn but I don't always have a plan for how I'm going to acheive those goals. The most difficult habit, I suppose would be Habit 6, using technology to my advantage. I love to use computers for research but I'm not always interested in new technologies designed to help me organize my information or creating my own digital content. I hope this training will help me to become more comfortable with using social networking sites and services like flickr in my professional life.
