Think about how you felt when you completed a training course, finished your college degree, or ended a large project at work or home. Did you feel a significant sense of accomplishment? Did you reflect on the success and challenges you faced on the journey? Or maybe you thought it was done and would never have to think about it again.
Perhaps a better course of action is challenging yourself to think differently because lifelong learning should be a never-ending process. Sure, take a moment to appreciate your accomplishment, then consider how that energy you feel will keep you motivated to learn additional skills. These new skills can help boost productivity, foster creativity, and help others notice that you are an essential part of the team. It also enables you to understand how the world works, leading to a more fulfilling life and job.
Our professional careers are advancing at an ever-increasing pace, with the one constant being change. A driving passion for lifelong learning can keep us relevant and more valuable at work, put us on the top of the list for career advancement opportunities, and help insulate us against downsizing and layoffs. So, when the opportunity arises to participate in training programs, online courses, workshops, or seminars, be the first in line.
