Let’s face it.
Learning something can be daunting. The idea of having to learn everything from scratch and taking a whole lot of time to fully master it can be overwhelming for some.
But you know what?
Learning something can also be delighting. The idea of having to learn everything from scratch and making a whole lot of effort to fully master it can be inspiring for others.
As they say, learning is an eternal journey.
You see, learning is not just about learning everything from scratch. It’s about the process of learning everything from scratch, including all those sleepless nights you’ve had to endure as you continue to learn what you’re supposed to.
It’s about the analyzation, as you figure out what to do next. It’s about the testing, as you figure out if there’s anything you’ve missed out. It’s about the application, as you integrate everything you’ve learned in your daily tasks.
Even then, you need to learn more about what you’ve already learned about – not just to gain more knowledge, but also to gain more skills as you continue to apply in your daily life what you’ve learned with what you are learning.
Thus, it’s only right for you to start establishing great learning habits.
To do this, you only need to:
Admit it or not, most people refrain from learning something not because of time constraints as they always use as excuse. It’s not being motivated enough to learn something, even if it’s more about their craft. It’s not setting goals enough to be motivated enough to learn something, especially if it’s a new craft.
Thus, you need to set goals as you establish great learning habits. And by this, it means figuring out what your short-term goals are (joining a woodworking training for 72 hours) and what your long-term goals are (enrolling a master’s degree for 2 years). Regardless of what goal you may have, this will help you figure out what to do next – or if you even need a book like Java Programming 24-Hour Trainer.
