Tip#1042: Learning through Movies, Part 4 - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Learning can be so much fun when it involves good, fun people and food! I recently attended a Lunch & Learn for Black Cow Vodka the world’s only vodka made from pure milk. I got to meet Paul Archard, Founder & Partner who traveled to Toronto from England's West Dorset coast where the vodka is made entirely from the milk of grass grazed cows.

We also enjoyed a gourmet lunch and cocktails made with Black Cow Vodka and cheese thanks to Master Chef and Mixologist Jeremy Parsons and Mixologist Shannon Ferguson. Yes it was all super delicious and tasted so much better surrounded by friends and colleagues!

Learnography also had their 2nd Brunchography event with three speaker panels sharing their expertise and wisdom on learning factors within the corporate and educational industries. Last year I was the opening speaker (see tip#951) and this year I got to enjoy the event as a participant and really enjoyed the networking opportunities!

I always attend events with an open mind and am always wonderfully surprised when I learn something for either personal or professional benefits. It’s like anytime I watch a movie just to escape for awhile, I am thrilled when I realized a life lesson was just communicated to me from a character in the film and touches my heart!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)

The superhero action film, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, continues the galactic adventures of Starlord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and his team as they meet Peter’s father Ego (Kurt Russell). This is another exhilarating, thrilling, action packed, hilarious and super fun movie that also has some powerful, emotional moments! Other stars include Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki and Sylvester Stallone. See: movie trailer 

This is a true summer blockbuster, popcorn film and, like the first film, is filled with colourful creatures, aliens and popular songs from the 70’s and 80’s. What surprised me was the unexpected, heartfelt moments about family and the deeper meanings of what a dad and sister is about. So along with the stunning visual and audio delights are life lessons about recognizing the love of family beneath pain, anger and resentment. Highly recommend you see now on the biggest screen possible!

Learning through movies can be one of the most enjoyable methods of improving aspects of your life, relationships, career and work. Just be aware of those moments you receive an “aha” moment or feel an emotional charge from something that happens on the screen. That’s when you know you’ve received a golden nugget of wisdom!
