Which methods do you want to use to build your platform and increase your influence?
Be a leading learner, or a person who is continually teaching themselves new skills to stay ahead of the curve; and then showing you how to do this too. You don’t have to be the expert you just have to learn and apply and teach others how they can do the same.
I’d like to think that I’m a leading learner. I’m continually reading various blog posts, books, etc. and continually trying to apply what I’ve learned and share it. However, I’ve seen a recent trend where I’ve been too inundated with information which results in not taking action. How many books have you read that you could have applied the learnings to your day-to-day life? Probably too many.
This seems to be a trend with a lot of folks but there is a remedy. It’s called just in time learning. Just in time learning is a process where you learn the topic at hand when you need to learn it. For example, you’re setting up a WordPress website but have no idea how to install it. You would then go to Google and search for it and then learn it on the fly.
To be a better leading learner, I need to start writing more posts and create videos about what I’ve learned and share it with y’all.
