Wait! I meant to say that learning is FUN. You become enlightened, enabled, empowered, engaged, and able to think critically and strategically. You become smarter.
Learning is clearly in the eye of the beholder!
If you are interested in doing a better job at the work you do … and being able to help more people ... and creating a better mouse trap, learning is your path to success.
We all can take learning for granted. Quite often, learning is accidental. If the news is on TV, you learn about
what is happening in the world. If you have a conversation with a knowledgeable person, you learn what he/she
knows. This is the easy learning.
If you attend a professional development event – classroom training, a conference – learning becomes a little more difficult. Specific information is expected to be taken in and mastered.
The most difficult level of learning is when you must accomplish something new but have almost no idea how to do it. This learning is heavy pressure. But, you’re probably highly motivated.
The bottom line is, it’s up to you to decide whether leaning is work or fun. Make it what you will. Just Do It!
Questions to Ponder:
- What would it take for YOU to make learning fun instead of work?
- What would your motivation be?
- What would be your rewards?
