Susan Laxson This has nothing to do with real estate. I wish I would have taken formal music lessons when I was growing up. It would have put me years ahead when I was younger. Guitar is the easiest instrument to learn, but the hardest one to play expertly.

Susan,

I wish I had learned to ski at an earlier age.  It is something I truly love, and I will get up at the crack of dawn to get up on the slopes.  And it is never too late.  There is an 86 year old gentleman who took his first Yoga class and is still going.  It has improved his golf game, and his swing got better as a result.  You are never too old.  Meet us in Utah next season!  A

Psychology. I took one course in college but it was late at night after a very long day and I fell asleep in class most of the time! I failed because of that! I would like to have pursued a degree. It would certainly be helpful now!

There are many, many, many, many, .... "lessons" I wish I learned at a younger age.  People I shouldn't have avoided and some I should have.

 

As to learning something in school or taking a sport, nothing really comes to mind.  If I'm interested in something I go and learn it.
