Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am a huge believer in lifelong learning. Many people don’t want to continue learning after they begin in their careers for whatever reason.
This is stifling to your growth in your business and in every area of your life. A “know it all” attitude can be detrimental to becoming all that you can be.
Everyday should be an adventure in learning, growth, and progress.
As Abraham Lincoln said, “I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.”
Here are some key actions to becoming a lifelong learner:
- Keep a “To Learn List”—Instead of a “To Do List”, try a “To Learn List” by listing some things you want to learn more about or discover
- Practice 30-30—30 minutes of reading and 30 minutes of listening in the morning to anything that speaks motivation or inspiration to you
- Surround yourself with likeminded people—these are people who have the same goals that you do and who will influence you to show up with your best
- Grow at work—change some things around the office that aren’t serving you or your team into something that promotes continual learning—like listening to my monthly interviews with some of the best agents in the country
- Find a coach or mentor
Taking a few simple actions every day to promote continual learning will change your life and continue to take you to the next level in your business and with your team members.
