How do I learn how to learn?

How do I become open and patient about learning new things instead of terribly angry with myself and very easily frustrated? In many aspects of life there are things I'd like to do, or learn, but don't - because upon hitting a challenge I get intensely frustrated and angry and am mostly occupied with feeling terrible.

Exercise with Quick Rewards, Encourages Exploration & Discovery?

What kind of exercise would I find most fun & rewarding? I like baking. I like computers. I like debate. I like learning in a scatterbrain, whatever-interests-me-at-the-moment way. I like, in short, interactive, iterative activities that reward exploration and self-learning, and that start giving (at least small) rewards very quickly. Don't like group learning or scheduled lessons, and don't want to have to depend on a partner to show up. Need something that can be done on a regular basis. Thanks.

101 things Mr. Boss Man never bothered to teach you

If there was ONE thing that you wish you had been taught at your current job what would that be? What I am looking for is not something like...."Don't talk to Spencer in HR, he is a perv," more on the lines of "how to get information on X when Y is not working," or "What things can program Z do to make my job easier?" I need to design some sort of educational media for workplaces (software or internet based) and I am looking for some juicy leads. General is better.Thanks

How does someone learn for free?

My fiance has become obsessed with making ice cream. He has been making at least 2 new (and unique) flavors of ice cream every single week since August. He keeps saying he wants to learn more about it, and is planning on taking that ice cream master class at Penn State when the time comes, but that is a whole year away. What I would like to try to do, as a gift, is arrange for him to observe a local ice-cream expert (in New York City, or within public transportation reach). [more inside]

Should I upgrade to IE7 while learning design to W3 standards?

Should I install Internet Explorer 7? I use IE6 (windows XP) now and am doing my best to learn XHTML and CSS -- I'm a newbe. I've check ASKme and there is quite a number of folks that are against updating. These folks appear to have substantial knowlege of programming and are far advanced to my knowledge of the subject . Should a person new to web design just upgrade to IE7 now and learn design to strict W3 standards rather than wait until the rest of the universe is at those standards and relearn them the right way? I know there is alot of grey area here -- for and against. Thank you....
