Motivational Monday - Living & Learning

 

Live and Learn

 

How do we learn as if we were going to live forever? It's easy! Commit to a ‘student mindset.’ Allow your curiosity to grow and lead you in new directions. Start with these tips:

 

1. Feed your curiosity

Don’t be shy - ask questions; spend time both listening to others’ answers as well as researching the answers. Be reminded that learning new things isn’t always about what you do in your career; learning is inherently beneficial.

 

2. Conquer your weaknesses

Commit to conquering one new topic each month - perhaps something you’re not totally comfortable doing - like ballroom dancing. Diversify your knowledge!

 

3. Read, read, read

Even if you’re not an avid reader, dive into books. Reading benefits us in more ways than simply learning new and different concepts. Studies show that reading can actually  increase emotional intelligence as well as social awareness. Connecting and relating to the book’s characters, we are learn the ability to work through complex social situations - both present and future.

 

Becoming a lifelong learner isn’t a new concept at all - sometimes we simply need a reminder! Make it a way of life…

 

 

 


 

LIVE AS IF YOU WERE TO DIE TOMORROW. LEARN AS IF YOU WERE TO LIVE FOREVER.MAHATMA GANDHI

 

I love this quote — learn as much as you possibly can, as though you had all the time in the world. Happy Monday everyone!

Same here, Ron and Alexandra Seigel! I'm also a huge proponent of continuing education/classes that relate to our business.

I remember my grandfather preaching that as well - 'We are never too old to learn." He was always enrolled in courses to enhance his business as well as to learn things like photography. I still agree with him!

Happy Monday, George Souto!

Hi Debe Maxwell, CRS, it's funny you mentioned reading, I just purchased a few books from Amazon. I also got noise canceling earbuds by Bose as I love to read when traveling. We are never too young or too old to learn.

Hi Debe,
You're singing my song!  I'm basically a learning junkie.  LOL  As a matter-of-fact, Education is my word for the year 2019.  I wrote about it here.  There are so many ways to learn these days it's absolutely amazing.

It's definitely a great quote!  I'm fascinated by all the questions that my child asks of me on a daily basis.  I try to learn from him about asking questions.  I see how curiosity is a natural process.  I think over the years, we get over inunudated with life that we lose site of that curiosity.
