Knowledge is the first step to learning but to take that knowledge and do something with it moves us to action and that is the first step to change. Every day we have numerous experiences. Take one of those experiences and identify in some detail what actually happened during that experience. Clarify ways to improve next time; and then make a call to action - do something - act to change a behaviour, add a strategy to overcome an obstacle, or reset priorities to match core values. What ever it is - learn from the experience and develop positive actions to improve.
When we use this method of learning we turn every day occurrences into learning opportunities.
We make learning continuous when we open our mind to it. A 76 year old can be just as excited about learning something new as a young child. That's why some people say they will never retire. They are always open to new possibilities.
What someone thought they knew about themselves or something thirty years ago often pales in light of what they know today. The "knowing" today is often deeper and has many more dimensions than 30 years ago.
What to do:
At the end of each day take a few moments to identify a positive or a problem experience that happened during that day, reflect on what happened during that experience, clarify ways to improve and then jot down an action for improvement. Put that action in your to do list for the next day.
Remember: “Learning and change are inseparable friends”
