Constant LearningArticle #699

Author: Ada Porat

Many people have the mistaken belief that learning stops at the acquisition of a diploma. Unfortunately, the hardest part of getting an education begins at the end of a university education.

The first step to learning lies in disciplining your mind so you can focus on the subject you want to remember. The minds of many people are composed of a jumble of random thoughts. It’s impossible to learn anything if you’re worried about the bills one moment and focused on how to get a raise the next when you need to concentrate on a lesson on running a business in the classroom.

Many people stop learning. They feel they know enough and don’t need to learn anything new. But this attitude is sure to turn them into antiques, of little use to employers looking for the employee who keeps abreast of the latest developments that concerns his career. In order to improve your learning skills, you need to be willing and prepared to keep learning.

Repetition burns new ideas into the mind. Book learning is certainly useful. Unfortunately, the mind is like a sieve, if what is learned isn’t being reinforced through repetition, it’s quickly lost. Not only do you need to pay attention, but you need to reinforce what you learn through repetition.

In order to learn better, the act of learning must be made fun. Children learn very quickly as they use their imaginations to compare what is being learned to what they already know. You can’t learn if what you need to know is dull and boring. In order to retain any new knowledge, you need to be using your imagination and creativity in interesting ways.

Application is an important key element in the learning process. Much like repetition, it means applying what you learn in real life. If you want to learn any skill, book learning isn’t enough. You need to apply what you learn to real life situations.

Many people have limited learning skills, since they limit what they learn to what they feel is most relevant. This is fine to a point, but life demands that you expand your circle to include other subjects. You should be reading and not just in your field of expertise. Learning means broadening the mind through reading and being curious about subjects that don’t pertain to your field of expertise. In a world where the average citizen is likely to change careers three times during a lifetime, it’s necessary to keep learning to keep ahead of changes.

If your diet consists of high carbohydrate foods laced with sugar, fat and calories, your mind will be sluggish and you won’t be able to learn very effectively. If you hope to advance in your career, the best thing you can do for yourself is to eat a healthy diet to keep your mind sharp and ready to learn. The same goes for exercise. The brain, like your body, can’t function effectively if it doesn’t get the oxygen it needs. Exercise stimulates the circulation and helps to improve memory and concentration.

Improving your learning skill means periodic analysis of your progress. If you haven’t learned something new at the end of every day, you will stagnate. All successful people are constant learners and that’s one of the major factors that made them wealthy. There’s no reason why you can’t improve your life skills by improving your ability to learn.
