What does it mean to be a lifelong learner?
Being a lifelong learner is something that we talk about all the time here at Standard Marketing Events. Keeping a studious open mind is one of the most important qualities we look for in our team. Here are 3 Tips to Stay a Lifelong Learner.
1. Ask Questions
As the old saying goes “curiosity skilled the cat.” Keep your curious mind like when you first began your professional endeavor. In a meeting, conference, or one on one sit down don’t be afraid to ask questions.
2. Read Books
With audio books available everywhere, there is no excuse to not be listening and learning. Platforms like Audible and Youtube make it easy to continue being a life-long learner on the go. Of course, if you are like me, you’ll still enjoy a quiet morning or evening to indulge in a great read. Highlighting great messages or tips to review later down the road are also one of the perks you can’t get with audio books.
Professional tip:Read something that is relevant to your current cycle of development in your career.
3. Set Up Weekly or Monthly Coffee Meet Ups
Here at Standard we truly believe in surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals. Make time to meet up with a mentor to discuss and share ideas, stumbling blocks, and triumphs to learn ways to improve, re-focus, and reach for new heights.
No matter how much you know, there is always more to learn.
