In honor of all the students going back to school, here are 3 easy reminders to help you continue your adult learning.
- Don’t Stop!
- Make Time
- “Google It”
Seems simple- but as we get caught up in the business of our lives, we sometimes forget to take time to sit down and learn something new. . Try signing up for a 30 minute webinar, taking a 15 minute online course, or watching a two minute video. You’re never too busy to take a little ‘you time’ to brush up on old skills or develop new ones. Besides, learning got you this far… so don’t stop!
You should always set aside time to continue your education. One saying that helps me prioritize my day is, “You always have time for the things you want to have time for.” It amazes me when people say they don’t have the time to do something, but will find 10-15 minutes to search their news feed. It doesn’t take long to read a quick article or watch a short tutorial. Make time, because you always have time for the things you want to have time for…and learning should be on that list.
Ask a teenager how much an elephant weighs fully grown. They’ll likely pull out their mobile device and have the answer within less time than it takes you to read this quick blog on the importance of learning. Many still look down on non-traditional learning techniques. The truth is that mobile devices have changed the way the world sees ‘need to know’ versus ‘nice to know’ information. Information is already at your fingertips; all you have to do is search for it. Have a question about a new trend in your field? Search online first and you’ll more than likely find the answer.
Now.. here’s your chance to go learn something. I, of course, recommend one of the great HON University Webinars. Watch one now!
