This is something we hear a lot around the Igloo, and I find it interesting. It can create a lot of frustration and impede your current learning experience. These are my musings..
The Right Time
Maybe when you were younger it just wasn’t the right time for you. Our tastes change as we get older and maybe it wouldn’t have made you happy back then. This way you can enjoy the learning experience.
Their Brains Are Like Sponges
Whilst that is true, as an adult learner, you have developed the maturity to overcome obstacles you might face in the course of your learning. Sometimes youngsters (particularly the more academic ones in my experience) can get very frustrated if they can’t do something straight away, and won’t always persevere. Whereas, We know as adults that success takes effort, and we’ll get there in the end with a little perseverance.
The Time Is Now
However you look at it, you didn’t do it when you were younger. You’re here now, with the skills and life experience you have acquired. If you want to learn, do it. There’s still plenty of fun to be had!
