“INTEREST” CAN MAKE LEARNING FUN
Yes, I have found that learning CAN be fun. Now I don’t mean being required to sit still in school or at a seminar all day long with a boring instructor and nothing to do but listen to the droning of voices and the bored flipping of pages and shifting weight of others. I’m not talking about trying to read a boring technical manual just because you’re new on the job!
I’m talking about learning. Actual learning!
Did you ever get really excited about something and you wanted to know more about it? It could have been “Does a fly really have six legs?” or “Why do I put gasoline in my car?” or “Why is math important at all?”
These questions can easily be answered if you’re just interested in finding out. That’s the first step. Being interested. Without INTEREST you will learn nothing! And I mean NOTHING!
Ever try to stuff some bit of knowledge in yourself because “someone told you to learn it”? Or because you thought you should? Those are not attitudes of “interest”.
What is “Interest”? One definition in my dictionary is “a feeling of
curiosity about something”.
That is a most vital element to learning.
Now stop for a moment and find this out for yourself with this small
1) Make a small list of what you are interested in.
2) Put a check next to each item you want to find out more about?
You checked everything on your list, right?
Well, that’s the first step towards learning. Wanting to know something more about something.
After that, the next step is to find the right source to get the knowledge from. It could be a book, a person, a website, or something else. But that’s another story.

Here’s what two of our customers have to say about this product:
"I recently purchased the Random House unabridged dictionary on CD-ROM. I have found this very useful. I use it frequently when writing papers for school. I changed one of my shortcut buttons on my keyboard to the dictionary so it opens at the touch of a button whenever I need it. It is much easier and faster than using an old-fashioned dictionary." K.I.
"I bought the Random House Unabridged Dictionary [CD]. I have used the Random House Unabridged quite a bit since I got it and find it really useful and helpful, particularly with my editing work, which is also done on the computer. I like its format and how convenient it is to search with it, as well as look up successive words in a chain and then trace back along the chain." D.L.
