What is the point in learning something new every day if it's not applicable in another situation? I doubt you do enjoy learning for its own sake;
Some people really do
enjoy learning, just like some people like watching films or reading books. It's not as though doing either of those things will generally give you anything useful for other situations either but plenty of people still do them.
Personally I've spent the past 25-30 years learning many different programming languages, I use about 3 or 4 mostly, the others were just because I'm interested in things like that, I'll probably never use most of them ever again and I knew that when I started but I enjoy it and I'll keep learning new ones as long as people keep creating them.
Life would be very dull if we only ever did things just because we needed to, and who knows, that tid-bit of information you learnt last year that you didn't think would ever be needed might actually be helpful in your next job.
