Don’t just slink away into the back room and come out, red-eyed and silent, after a few hours of studying. Share bits and pieces of what you’re learning with your friends and family. If you discover something interesting, bring it up at the dinner table or discuss it while driving your kids to school. Let your spouse or friends tag along on field trips to the art museum or city counsel. Chances are they’ll enjoy being involved in this part of your life and you’ll appreciate the chance to share it!
