I had a talk with a friend earlier today regarding my Pocket lists. Pocket app, that is. Don't worry, this is definitely not about my discarded grocery or to-do lists which, quite frankly, would either be pretty boring or frightening, depending on which one on any given day.
I am, however, a lifelong lover of learning and knowledge ('Jill of all trades, master of none' type) and seemingly always have a running list of things I would like to know running longer than the list of things I do know. I actually think this is a good thing, in spite of the frustration of never reaching the end of that list. It's what inspired this Spark blog in the first place- the spark of beauty that lies between educational curiosity and DIY creation. So whether you're here to learn or to create something new, here are 7 seriously awesome lists from the bottom of my pocket to help get you started.
"Sign up to these awesome newsletters and revel in your good decisions."
"The best way to learn anything nowadays? Online classes—they’re cheap (or completely free), and you can take them anytime, anywhere, and in any fashion you prefer. See, the future isn’t so bad after all."
"5 books...,each of them with a potential to truly change your life for better. At least, that what they did to me."
"..here are 50 of the apps to unlock your creativity – and that of your children too, from coding to storytelling."
This list seriously makes me giddy with joy.
"Each of these books are powerful tomes in and of themselves when it comes to the challenge of building habits that stick; but together they become a comprehensive collection of resources on how to create and sustain the habits you need to succeed, both personally and professionally."
"While there are many websites out there that can suck your time, there are also web extensions and programs people have created to help you focus. With them, you can limit the amount of time you waste on social media, quickly find the site you're looking for, and even improve your writing so you can get a point across fast."
