Getting The Most Out Of Learning: Three Things To Not Say To Yourself

Hey there, hero!

Recently, I did a video that had three tips on what to do to get the most out of any training session.

I was reminded of another three statements you probably don’t want to make as you embark on a learning opportunity.

These come in very handy if you want to uplevel your knowledge.

Hope this helps!

  1. I don’t know if in fact that app on his phone keeps it from shutting off, but I do know that there are folks who have to have their phones on 24/7, including the manager at my Hideous Survival Job in the low end of retail, in case someone has a brainstorm in the middle of the night. That would drive me nuts. I shut my phone off after 10. If it’s an actual emergency, they can call my landline. I need my sleep.

  2. David, Love the message. In keeping with your comment about the company paying for him to be there, I was teaching a six hour class recently to working adults who had been sent by their companies. One student had a sour look on his face from the very beginning. During a break I ran into him in the hall and said: “So, what do you think of the material today?” (in a very nice way). He was very angry and said the material I was teaching had NOTHING to do with his job. I asked him what he did. When he told me I was shocked. Almost EVERYTHING I was talking about related to his job. I guess I’d be mad too if my company sent me to something that was of no benefit but clearly they thought it did. What a waste of time and missed opportunity for him.

    It saddened me a bit and reminded me that I NEVER want to miss out on learning something new. from people like you with more knowledge and experience than I. Thanks for your generosity.

    I think you’ve mentioned before the value of being a sponge. Asking that question: “How do you know that?”. Brilliant David.
