I have listed three action steps to help you accelerate your learning skills.
- Commit to learning one new skill per quarter. Try to choose the skills that match your career or choose ones that will benefit you in a new job. When you commit, schedule time to actively learn new skills.
- Subscribe to at least one trade magazine. Consider the cost as part of your tuition. You could hit up your company to cover the cost, even better.
- Join some meetup groups geared towards the skills you want to learn. These meetups require people to meet face-to-face. It is scary for some people. But, once you get past the fear, the groups are an excellent resource for learning. It’s also a great way to expand your network.
The steps I have listed are to help you step up your learning or help you come up with other ideas that will work for you.
Until next time, stay safe, and keep the faith.
