Check out the latest edition of my newsletter
This week I look at what I can share with you from lessons learnt in 2018, Josh Bersins 3 things for learning in 2019 and what Apple can teach us about building a world class learning ecosystem.
Don’t forget to subscribe if you like what you see and share with others too.
Why am I doing this? why are we choosing this course of action? Why has this happened?
For me ‘why’ is one of the most powerful words you can use. In whatever you do, whether it’s in a professional or personal scenario, we should always ask ourselves – Why am I doing this? why is this project or programme important for our business?
Understanding the ‘why’ is the biggest part of anything we embark on. The how and what are important too, yet without understanding – why are we/I doing this, we cannot fully buy-in to what we are trying to change and achieve.
For more sporadic daily thoughts like this, please subscribe to my weekly newsletter where I share insights, experiences and research on learning, personal development and managing the monkey mind.
This piece has been inspired by three things, one being a recent post I shared on LinkedIn that you can view in the picture below, a lyric from a new song by Slipknot and a movie called the Intern starring Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway – an odd combo I’m aware.
My context and aim in releasing the LinkedIn post was initially to start a conversation on not discarding what we already have in favour of what’s on trend. It the days after I posted this, I began reflecting on what this philosophy could mean for many areas of life and in particular in the fields of learning an marketing which I operate in.
This is going to be a quick post on the key lessons I’ve learnt in 2018. I hope in sharing these that you can take something from them and maybe learn something new in 2019.
So the new year is upon us once again and amidst the rush to create resolutions and goals, what is it that we should truly be doing this year?
Maybe it’s a simple as giving yourself a try.
