In this digital age where a universe of information is accessible within seconds, it's easy to be paralysed by the simple question of where to begin.
Striving to be always-on, our conversations are bloated with the junk left behind by doom scrolling. Our brain real estate is packed with articles we bookmarked hoping to revisit, or podcasts we half listened to while we were running errands. The quest for knowledge and enrichment used to be an admirable pursuit, so when did admitting “I don’t know” become a dirty idea? In these turbulent times, information feels infinite, and having a minute to yourself to learn something new feels like a defiant act. The pursuit of education requires bravery, action and hard work.
