Life is a continual learning process but that doesnโ€™t mean you canโ€™t enhance yourself by choosing to learn a specific something.

Be it a second language, a craft, or how to write computer code, learning a new skill is very beneficial.

If youโ€™re going to learn something new, it requires commitment.

This makes it good for a New Yearโ€™s resolution.

And if you make a resolution, you need to know how to stick to it.

1. Accept That Learning for Its Own Sake is Fun

Embrace the concept of life-long learning and life will never feel dull!

Learning for the sake of learning keeps the little gray cells from stagnating and keeps your mind as bright as a button.

Even if you're learning new skills you don't seem to have an immediate use for, you'll never know how handy they might turn out to be one day - and in any event, you become a more open, interesting person in the process!

Attitude is important to sticking to New Yearโ€™s resolutions.

2. Sign up to 100 Days of Practice

The app 100 (giveit100.com) enables users to participate in a challenge to get better at something for 100 days and share a 10-second video of their achievement with others as they go along.

Use the app to lean juggling, tap dancing, gymnastics, the trumpet or how to cook a meal from scratch.

Obviously, there cannot be any promises how much progress you'll make in 100 days - that's up to you - but the app and community can act as a "buddy" to help you stay motivated, practice and learn from the example of others.

3. Actions Speak Louder than Words

Learn by doing!
