The Importance of Continued Learning
Why is it so important to make time for learning? No matter what industry you work in, things change, sometimes rapidly. Not updating your knowledge and skills could mean that you fall behind in your industry and in order for you to stay on top of your game in business, you need to be in the loop.
Another reason why it's important to constantly be working on personal or professional development is to keep your business content fresh and inspiring. I call it the learn and teach cycle... This is my way of making sure that I never run out of ideas for business content, and more importantly so that my audience or clients don't get bored of the same old content. I make time in my week to learn something new, and once I feel confident that I understand what I have learnt, I will put it into practice and then teach it to my audience or clients. This is a never ending cycle for me of learning and teaching, and it is the best way I have found to ensure that I always have something valuable to say.
Lastly, the most important reason to make time for learning, is to challenge yourself! Do you ever get those days where you feel stagnant and you find yourself feeling completely uninspired and unmotivated? Try setting some time aside to learn something new and watch your inspiration and motivation levels rise.
There are so many ways that you can learn something new to help yourself, your business or your clients. Here are some of my favorite ways:
Take a class/course
Read a book about your industry
Consume online content - YouTube videos, Instagram Stories, Facebook Lives, Blog Posts, etc.
Invest in a coach or training program
Attend events in your area and network
Chat to other people in your industry or in the industry you want to learn more about.
