People who are intellectually curious and constantly learning have greater economic value to themselves and their organizations. So learn a little (at least) about everything that you can. Take advantage of every opportunity your supervisor offers (and ask for more). But most importantly, make learning your responsibility.
Those who make a habit of learning things they need to know as well as things not directly related to them:
· Tend to be more imaginative, creative, and innovative
· Can do more things more quickly and effectively
· Have more to offer their teammates and colleagues
· Are able to make more of their productive abilities
· Are likely flexible, versatile, and forward-looking
· Can respond promptly to shifts in customer/superivor needs and preferences
Constantly learning new things isn’t just nice to do; it’s a must-do for anyone seeking lasting success. A good nighttime exercise is to jot down at least one thing new that you learned today. If you can’t, you have to come up with two tomorrow!
P.S. If you have comments or questions, please feel free to contact me.
