3 Daily Practices Of Perpetual Learners
Of all the skills to develop to succeed in the future of work, becoming a perpetual learner is at the top of the list. The world is changing so rapidly that what you learned in school or on the job is no longer enough. Perpetual learners take ownership over their learning and growth and truly learn how to learn.
Perpetual learning can be developed daily. Here are three things perpetual learners do every day:
- Ask questions. Perpetual learners are constantly asking questions of themselves and their teams. They want to know why things are done a certain way and if there’s a better way to do things. Perpetual learners seek to understand new topics and perspectives, challenge conventional practices, and are curious about their lives and careers.
- Make time. True learning comes as perpetual learners make time to find the answers to their questions. Even as little as 15 minutes a day watching a video, listening to a podcast, or reading a book or article can help you find the answer. Perpetual learners understand that asking questions without exploring possible solutions doesn’t lead to real learning.
- Apply. Perpetual learners complete the cycle by applying what they learn. If they’ve found an answer or solution to their question, they put it into practice to improve their life or business. And if that solution doesn’t work, they go back to the beginning to ask questions again.
Perpetual learning is exactly that — perpetual. It requires daily actions of asking, exploring, and applying. As you adopt these daily activities, you too can become a perpetual learner and take your career and business to the next level.
