It seems like such an easy question to ask, but I’ve found that the answers are myriad. They sometimes surprise me. I recently had an interesting discussion with a friend who couldn’t understand the impulse, despite admitting that he lurked on blogs and Twitter, to read content in order to avoid boredom.
Mine are simply to:
- Be better at articulating my views
- Challenge my opinions
- Meet lots of interesting people be it over the web or in the flesh
- Learn more about the world around me
- Keep my curiosity piqued in music, design or reading great prose
