Do you love to learn? I have been an independent marketing consultant for 29 years and I can tell you that my greatest successes have been with clients who answer “Yes” to this question.
If you have answered “Yes”, then what are you learning at the moment? Does this include professional knowledge, soft skills, a new language and a new hobby? How do you like to learn? Via Apps, reading or formal study? How do you remember things? Are you a visual learner? What is your learning style? How many hours a week do you spend learning?
One of my favourite books is Future Shock by Alvin Toffler – which was written in 1973. Toffler wrote that the future is already here – but its arrival is inconsistent, geographically speaking. I have visited New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo and I live close to London. Big cities like these have, to a large extent, embraced the future.
Charles Darwin realised that the future would be populated with species that could adapt to changing circumstances. The problem with change is that it is inconvenient, isn’t it? You have to learn a whole lot of new stuff. There we are: back to learning.
“In the struggle for survival, the fittest win out at the expense of their rivals because they succeed in adapting themselves best to their environment.” ~ Charles Darwin
“Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge.” ~ Charles Darwin
I wish you all the best with your learning!
