Having a commitment to continual learning is a principle of all personal development. Learning changes everything about your life. Learning make life better.
A Structure for Learning
In the previous chapter, you set some goals for your life. I’d also like you to set some goals for learning. I like to learn in ninety-day increments, and I would encourage you to establish realistic goals for what you would like to focus on and learn during the next three months.
Look forward ninety days from today, and ask yourself these questions:
What new skill sets and competencies will I need to become the best person I can be at my job?
What skill sets and competencies do I need to develop to do a better job of managing my finances?
What can I read to have a better understanding and framing of my personal faith?
Then think about how you learn. Do you learn best when you read a book, or is it easier for you to recall information after you’ve heard it explained by a teacher or audio program? Or do you learn best when you’re doing a specific task? Some people are visual learners, others are auditory learners, and still others are kinaesthetic learners who learn by doing. For many people, a combination of these three types of learning styles is most effective.
THE LEARNING WORKSHEET
Learning happens every day. Each time you become aware of something new and you make a conscious connection to older information, you build upon your depth of knowledge. Th e main issues with continual learning are:
Prioritising what you want to learn
Deciding how you will learn
Making time to learn
Take a few minutes to prioritise a list of specific things you want to learn. Would you like to learn more about the amazing science of neuroplasticity?
