|Nourishing the learning habit|
We are all aware how education and learning are synonymous with our development, career and growth. Education of a certain level has long become a fundamental requirement for a position or a job. In the modern day societies, a clear distinction is set between people who are learned and those who aren't. This purely translates to success and growth in a career. However the learning that we are discussing here is a little different. It is the learning that we acquire in our free time while we are already on a job. It may or may not provide a direct value addition to your current role. Adding skills to your personality should be viewed as a mind nourishment process; just as vital as food nourishing the body for smooth functioning. It could be as simple as reading a book or getting enrolled to a course or anything that you are comfortable with to begin.
However, nowadays, unfortunately due to constraints of time or stress, we have stopped the process of active learning once for all. Little do we realize that the learning that we pick up never goes waste. Even if it does not bring about visible results in the beginning, it transforms you remarkably within. It is no doubt an investment in your time and energy, but is definitely worth it. The key however, is to learn and add new skills with a willingness to do it. We need to be passionate pursuing it; just as we do with our hobbies. Remember the equation:
"Constant Learning = Results
Willingness + Constant Learning = Outstanding Results"
There are more than few benefits that you derive out of constant learning process. Following are just a few of them:
- It brings about discipline in life.
- It keeps your mind open and receptive.
- Helps you become more observant, sensitive and understanding.
- New knowledge bring in new awareness.
- Ability to adapt to situation and deal with difficult problems increases phenomenally.
