My passion for continuous learning drove me to sign up for Coursera a couple years ago. What started as a way to learn some new skills on the side has now become a daily habit of mine. I'm fascinated by the wide range of topics covered on Coursera, from programming to photography to philosophy. There is always something new to discover. Being able to take world-class courses from top universities added to the appeal.When I first joined, I took a few intro courses just to get a feel for the platform. I enjoyed the self-paced format that let me learn at my own pace. The videos, readings and assignments helped concepts stick in a way that traditional lectures never did for me.

It didn't take long before I was completing one or two courses per month in addition to my regular work. I found that setting aside even 30 minutes a day helped me stay engaged and make steady progress. TheCoursera community also kept me motivated to keep learning.Some of my favorite courses so far have been Web Design for Everybody, Learning How to Learn and Introduction to Psychology. They not only improved my skills but also changed the way I think about my work and the world.

By documenting my Coursera journey here, I hope to hold myself accountable to continue learning new things each month. I'm looking forward to gaining new perspectives from courses across different topics. My daily Coursera sessions have become the best way for me to expand my horizons everyday.
