Be A Life-Long Learner

The number one strategy for thriving in uncertainty: Be A Life-Long Learner


I love learning. It is not only fun, but my ability to unlearn and learn new skills, and apply new information boosts my creativity, my self-sustainability, keeps me competitive, and is a great skill to demonstrate to employees and clients.

The list below shows all of the courses I have embarked on in the past two months during the lockdown. I have not completed all of them and a few I probably never will. I used to think this meant I was lazy and no good at following through.
But provided I get one insight or one good idea I can act on, then for me that is value enough.



As adult learners, we need the freedom to cherry-pick, to choose our routes through the material and chop back and forth.
The proof, after a challenging April, was that I had a very good May, and June has also started well – I put this down to being flexible and learning new stuff when I need it.

On a sales program this weekend, one of the other participants asked why, after 14 years as a coach, I was doing the course. I said because every time I put my focus on sales, I sell more.

Today, directly off the back of the training, I created a new client.

I have learnt to recognise opportunities to step beyond my comfort zone in the pursuit of things that bring me true fulfilment – it was a small tweak that has ended up making a significant difference. We now speak on a regular basis and Simon has become the voice which says “you can do this”.
