Whilst you can enjoy the fruits of your labour, you need to ensure that you are constantly working hard on your game to further improve yourself. You may consider yourself an expert in a particular field, no matter what, you should always strive to improve.
Don’t just learn what you need in a limited time, you want to be a lifelong learner and make continuous improvements to ensure that your standards never drop below your ultimate best. You should embrace the Zen idea of “always a student,” as even the masters accept and realise they can become more skilled in the things they’ve already learnt. If you can accept this, then you’ll be strides ahead of your competition.
To excel you must have a willingness to learn, evolve and adapt – only then will you be achieving peak performance. If you are unable to accept this, then you’ll never be able to improve your learning, by having this fixed mindset, your talents and traits cannot be developed. You must recognise that these areas can be enhanced through dedication. By accepting this, overall your happiness and success will improve in almost every area.
Having this dedication to always learn increases your value within a team. You want your team members to value every query and input you provide knowing that you are the figure they can look to who will offer reasonable advice for the current situation.
Wanting to learn not only improves your overall knowledge, it simultaneously advances your coaching skills and delivers information to those who wish to learn, who in turn can teach each other.
As a leader of an organisation, you will want to strive to make learning part of your company’s culture. By teaching what you’ve learnt over time, your company will consistently grow in a positive momentum, however, if you refuse to teach others throughout your business structure, your company will become stale and peak relatively low.
Always encourage yourself to learn more. The more you learn in relation to your organisation, the more well-rounded you become. Never settle for too little, push yourself to improve your knowledge and you will automatically see the benefits.
