Setting Small Challenges
Recently, I set myself the task of looking for seven words, mainly adjectives and a few more unusual nouns, in the English Dictionary and learning their meanings over seven days. Each Saturday I put a new list of words and their description on the fridge so that each time I am in the kitchen I can learn a few words in between doing the cooking and other chores.
Here is an example of words for week 1:
I won''t include their meanings here and I don't suppose I will ever have the chance to use the word Oubliette* in a conversation! I am hoping that an increased vocabulary will give me an added advantage when it comes to filling in job applications!
I am going to set myself a few more achievable challenges this week such as learning something new in jewellery making and cooking something I have never cooked before (fried chicken was a first for me a few weeks ago).
If you are inspired by this and in the mood for setting yourself a small challenge, let me know what it is in the comments below.
