#ThursdayThought – What Did You Learn This Week?
Projects that cascade down.
Texts and calls.
Other peoples urgencies overriding yours.
You’re busy and just trying to keep up in a daily survival to accomplish the most basic of tasks. No time to get anything else done.
But did you take any time to learn anything?
Did you learn to think for 2 minutes while driving about how you could have handled a situation better? Take the time to be more self-aware about how you come across?
Do you find time while travelling by plane, car, rideshare to listen to a short podcast, read a quick few pages, peruse an industry article?
Take 120 seconds to let your brain rest before charging into the next meeting? Breathe and feel your energy and calmness restored? Learn that a quick recharge is beneficial to your body and well being?
Can you watch others interact and learn how to better engage others? Or hear what they’re talking about and notice trends in the market or workplace?
The opportunity to learn and be able to bring value to others – and ourselves – is all around us for the taking.
We just need to be aware of it and take just a couple of minutes – not too long – to be attentive to learning and soak it it.
You’ll be amazed at your conversations, your knowledge base and your confidence when you do.
