Last week was one of those few weeks in which a lot of learning happens. Not very uncommon if you are in a profession that needs you to constantly keep pace with something as dynamic as the world wide web. But this time it made me understand what makes useful learning more enjoyable than compulsive learning. And the answer is simple - Because the we actually end up using the former.
Ever tried word power books for improving your vocabulary. I remember when I was reading Norman Lewis, words that I had recently learnt appeared in whatever I read at that time. Same way this time I found that almost every one was suddenly tweeting and sharing articles related to the information I was trying to dig up.
