You can learn from anything and everything. The good, the bad, the neutral. Even the air can teach you about your connection to others and the planet.
While the possibilities to learning are limitless, I have found writing, teaching and doing to be the best ways I learn. But before being able to write, teach and do, I have found reading, watching, and listening to work best for me.
In more practical terms, I read books, listen to audiobooks, take video courses, experience life, and then I reflect, write, teach and do—all in order to learn as best as I can.
I strive to learn from the best, to model and improve after them; to learn from diverse disciplines, to see the world in different ways; to learn from opposing views, to reach better conclusions; to learn from all types of feedback, to improve on my blind spots; to learn from experiences, to do things better next time; to learn from anything and everything really. Everyone’s got their own style and my examples are just to spark ideas.
With all this said, it is always good to keep in mind that your time is limited and you won’t be able to learn everything that there is to know. Eventually, you’ll want to focus on a few mentors you can model after and create something of your own.
Love learning and never stop learning.
