How to Learn From Life Lessons
Building a Lesson Bank
Ever since February 20, 2016, the day that forever changed my life, I have made an effort to document almost every experience I have had in which I learn something. I don’t share all of the documentations and the majority of them are written privately in my personal journals, but I always take a moment to deconstruct experiences in my life that I would consider lessons.
So what do I call this practice of documentation you ask? I call it my lesson bank. It’s pretty simple. I have created a literary bank which contains stories, experiences, events both personal and non-personal, mistakes, triumphs, hardships and so on, where I keep track of things I have learned, for my own reflection and perhaps someone else’s reflection some day in the form of a legacy.
