Habits to Help You Learn

by Nov 22, 2017

We are all constantly learning when we’re at work, whether you’re an intern or a CEO. Directly or indirectly, we’re always picking up new things and observing what’s around us. However, to really absorb and truly learn, you need to take an active approach.

In his article “These are the 3 Habits You Need to Learn Anything“, Adam Lupu outlines the “3 Aces”, which he thinks are the keys to actively learning and truly absorbing what you learn.

  • Awareness: Lupu suggests making sure you know your own learning habits well, and being aware of all the different ways you learn. He gives some examples of both conscious and unconscious learning as well. When you understand the conscious and unconscious ways you learn, you can better capitalize on it.
  • Access: Lupu recommends gaining better access to your own habits and rituals by writing them down. When you have easy access to this, you can more easily assess your learning progress. He also recommends using the process of deliberate practice, feedback collection, and and self-reflection to gauge your grasp on how well you’re learning something.
  • Accountability: It’s critical that you hold yourself accountable when you’re trying to learn a new skill or develop (or break) a habit. Much like going to the gym, it can feel like a lot of work. However, it’s very hard to effectively develop better learning habits if you aren’t consciously assessing yourself. Hold yourself accountable and make goals for yourself.

We should all strive to better ourselves both in the workplace and outside of it. The first step to this is by learning as best as you possibly can. Lupu’s recommendations above will help you hone your active learning skills, so keep them in mind.
