All work and no play makes Jack (or Jill) dull. The reality is that during your lifetime, you’ll spend almost 90,000 hours at work. And out of those 90,000 hours, the odds are pretty good that during your prime work years, you’ll spend as little as four hours a day doing “fun” things, like a hobby, playing sports, or even watching TV.
Having something to do outside of work is good for you. They can provide different stimulation for your brain, trigger creativity, and generally provide a “break” from the day-to-day responsibilities that we face.
Plus, these pursuits give you the opportunity to connect with people outside of work and family, and they can help you learn to manage your time more effectively.
Starting a creative project may seem intimidating. Sure, you’ve always wanted to draw your own comic book, but the last time you picked up a sketch pad was…well, you don’t remember when. And, even if you have a flexible job, there are only so many hours in the day, that once you’ve done all your “adulting,” you may not have the time (or energy) to drive to class.
With Skillshare, you can learn new skills and pursue your passions whenever it’s convenient for you. Learn from experienced peers, self-taught experts, or even others with the same skill level as you in their learning community. With thousands of classes to choose from, you can stream a class whenever and wherever you want. Or, connect and network with people who share the same interests as you.
Learn a skill you’ve always wanted to master, but never had the time for. Or sharpen your existing creative skills to make yourself a more marketable job seeker or valuable employee. And with classes in entrepreneurship, marketing, and even productivity, Skillshare can help you enhance your “practical” skills, too.
