All of us know what is “Learning” and would say – oh, that’s very simple! Irony is that there are not many, who have a right understanding or do a right job!! It is because of that, most of us don’t have real taste of learning!
Learning is one of few things, which has very unique characteristics. Learning knows no limit. It evolves and enhances, as long as you live with it and use it. It starts to languish and weaken, when you believe you have learnt enough! What you have learnt would start to exit and extinct, when you don’t use it!
Continuous learning is essential for continuous development. Everyone wants his/her development; but lacks desire to learn and hence, they cannot go where they want to. In corporate and communities, nearly everyone takes pleasure in talking about importance of constant learning; but very few are able to fathom what it really means!
Learning has to lead to incremental knowledge, induction to Change and inspiration to implement! This is when new competencies crop up and existing ones get enhanced!! Learning also means a change in character and correction in perceptions.
Reckon the reality – if above does not happen, believe me your learning is fractured or faulty! Such learning is nothing but information gathering, which can’t be gainfully used.
Best learning is when –
Learning is worst, when –
Moral of Learning
Get your definition right of “Learning”!
No learning is real, unless it:
Learning has to be all inclusive – for dos and don’ts, from friends and foes, from good and bad. In other words, learn you must from every situation you are in. It is just a question of your attitude and practice.
Never forget that you can best learn from whom you want to leave out!
For Leaders, continuous learning is life!!!
