The learning process is a never-ending process. That’s one of the basic entrepreneurial business potential energy. That’s something that makes you and your business different.
You can start learning immediately after you start reading a book, but if you don’t take notes and start with the implementation of what you already learned very often you can forget it.
That’s the case with everything. You can read a blog post from which you learn something, but if you don’t take immediate actions, you can simply forget the post or find it in the collection of hundreds or thousands blog post for future review. And time goes on. You don’t make anything from learned, or simply what you learned from the learning process is not there in your brain.
You continue to learn new things, and again, what you’ve learned also ends in the garbage with all different stuff that you learned, and simply forgotten.
Here are 5 simple steps that you can use if you want your learning skills and what you’ve already learned to be one of your biggest competitive weapons.
#1 Let’s Your Learning Process Become Part of Your Goals
This not means that you don’t need some other skills or some other knowledge than what your personal and business goals want. But, this means that you always need to try starting with something that is most important for you. That’s your goals.
What you learned will be something that will help you in the better or quicker accomplishment of your business goals.
#2 Have a Notebook and Take Notes While You Learning
Is it simple? Yes, you need a notebook or simply use Evernote and make a certain notebook where you will take notes about everything that you’ve learned today.
If you learn something from your favorite newspaper, or blog that you read everyday, or reading the book, or watching the TV or everything else from your everyday life, you need to take a note about that if you think that it is worth something.
#3 Translate Each Note Into Action Steps as a Part of Your Learning Process
Why you need notes, or why you learned something if you don’t make something with that knowledge?
On a daily basis, translate each note that you take into the action steps that you need to take.
#4 Implement Action Steps
When you have action steps it will be the easiest part to implement them. Simply follow your action steps from the previous step, and you are on the right way to improve your business on the everyday level.
#5 Is There Something More That You Can Learn?
Each of your’s action steps can lead to something new that you can learn.
Always ask this question, and answer in your notebook, then repeat the cycle. This is a never-ending process.
