Learning Increases Passion

When you learn something new or challenge yourself, your brain is stimlulated to release hormones that make you feel good. As Mark talks about in his books this “feel good” brain chemical is prevalent when your young. Then in your 30s it begins to decline. You have to do things to stimulate it. One way is through learning.

The Internet has so many resources that are free – you can learn from the brightest people alive.

Here are two examples:

Academic Earth – has free lectures from the world’s top scholars

Ted – inspired talks from the world’s top thinkers and doers

I also listen to free podcasts and meditations on iTunes. What about you? What do you do to keep learning?
