We all learn at a different pace. Some of us might be able to look at something once and instantly have it saved to our memory bank; others it might take two, three, maybe even four times before it becomes solid.
I know from experience that it can be easy and hard to pick up on things even if you know the concepts. Take for instance switching jobs within your same field. You haven’t left the field but you still need to learn a ton about the new company, the people, how things work, you are learning as you go.
I take each of these moments with stride. I’ve learned over the years that you can’t rush learning. People use to say ‘cram for your classes’ but you really can’t. You need to absorb it all otherwise you don’t know the culture, the people, or the field itself.
So to me… To learn is to take it all in. That is learning.
Weekly Discovery Challenge: Learning
We often take people for granted if they know too much about a certain topic or area of knowledge. We underestimate their value to an organization or group and for some it can be detrimental to their future and for others it becomes an asset.
Recently I’ve been underestimated and have found a better fit for my knowledge and skill set. Those that didn’t value what I brought to the table will not have the benefit of me sharing my depth and understanding of the culture, experience, and innuendos of everyday occurrences within the setting any longer. It will be their loss as they underestimated the power of a persons network.
Never underestimate someone and who they know, what they know, and where they’ve gained their experience. My next adventure knows all too well how valuable those skills are and I’m looking forward to engaging.
