How to Apply what you Learn in Business & Life
“TO KNOW AND NOT TO DO IS REALLY NOT TO KNOW”
– Stephen R. Covey
There is a wealth of fantastic content out there, but a scarcity of application.
It’s far too common that people listen to or read something new, then immediately move onto something else without applying what they learn.
NEVER move onto new content until you have absorbed and practiced what you learned. Otherwise you are wasting your time and money.
Here are some practical tips on how to absorb and integrate what you learn:
Step 1: Press pause and take notes on any Nuggets that you grab from a podcast, video, course, or book before moving on. I normally use the notes section of my iPhone to do this so I always have the notes handy
Step 2: Write down specifically WHERE and HOW you can APPLY this in your business or life
Step 3: DO IT – execute whatever you write down
Step 4: DO IT AGAIN in another situation. Practice makes progress and the more you practice, the more natural it will become
Step 5: Teach what you leaned to somebody else.
Step 6: Rinse and repeat for the next lesson
