Need a little inspiration to get out there and learn something new? A new short film by director/producer Rick Mireki will have you positively itching to pick up some new skills and knowledge. Mireki writes that the film is the result of "3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage." Most of us don't have the ability to travel the world to learn like Mireki and his team, but the beautifully shot and edited film has me wanting to sign up for a class—any class—or knock on my neighbor's door and see what she can teach me. After all, isn't that what being a lifelong learner is really about? From GOOD EDUCATION
