Stop All That Learning!

Stop continuously learning something new!
Yes, I said stop learning something new. Our brains are only built to handle a certain amount of information at any given time. Too often we attend every workshop, read every book, watch every video that we think will help us learn and achieve more.
But less is more has never been more relevant than in learning. We must learn and relearn and relearn until we become the expert. If you are reading a book:
- Read it once all the way through to get a good idea of what the book is about.
- Reread the book with a highlighter, pen, or some other way to take notes. Read with intent. Search for key things that you can take away immediately.
- Reread the key take-a-ways within 24 hours.
- Read the book again to see what you’ve missed. I guarantee you’ll find things that you didn’t see the first few times.
Once you’ve mastered the content of the book (or workshop or seminar) find someone to teach. Look for our blog “Teach It To Get It” to learn the impact of teaching.
