In today’s episode, I’m going to talk to you about professional development. Even if you’ve been very successful with your business and you feel that you’ve made it to the top, you need to be committed to being a lifelong learner.
Think back to the time you spent in school. As a student, your primary job was to learn. It wasn’t to sell or produce a product, it was simply to absorb all of the knowledge being presented to you. Unfortunately, it’s easy to stop learning once the tests end. Nobody is able to make it through life solely on the knowledge we learned in school, and we have to keep learning.
In this episode, I’m going to present some opportunities for lifelong learning.
Some highlights include:
Continual learning is a sign of strength, not weakness. (minute 2:00)
Learning doesn’t have to be time-consuming. I try to read at least 10 pages of a book every night before bed. Daily learning in small chunks is a great strategy for fitting professional development into your already busy schedule. (minute 4:00)
Attend live seminars. I always attend at least one live seminar every six months, and the reason I love these is because it’s a great opportunity to set everything else aside and focus on your professional development. (minute 8:00)
Darren Hardy says you should invest 10% of your income towards your professional development. This is a great strategy, and you will reap the benefits. (minute 12:00)
Are you not enjoying learning? You’re probably not learning from the right person. Don’t be afraid to mix it up and try someone new. You just need to find the right person for you. (minute 14:00)
