Fast Tip Friday: The Best Way to Learn

Jul 29, 2022 6:45:00 AM



Hey, this is going to be a quick message this time. I sit down and I record a bunch of these things at one time. We use Simmons Media.

Matt Simmons is a great partner with our business, I love working with Matt. He comes in, has his equipment, puts my butt in this chair, and says "do it". I love the way he works. I love the product that he turns out for us. So, I've got to be equal to the task and give you some value.

But today, we're going to be pretty brief and it's really just an exercise that I'd like all of you to commit to putting into practice over the next two weeks, at least once a week. And it's pretty simple.

The best way to learn is to teach. So one of the things that I had to go through when I was getting into this consulting business was learning a whole bunch of concepts about more efficient, more effective ways to do business, collect decisions, manage myself, prospect effectively, manage conversations to decisions, whatever it is. One of the first things I learned in that process was, the more I shared an idea or a new concept with other people, where I forced myself to have to explain what I thought I had learned, I had to explain it to them in a way in which they could apply it, the more impactful those moments of learning were for me personally.

So, here's my request of all of you. In all of our businesses and all of our daily life experiences, there's moments of learning that are non stop. I'd like you to commit to being conscious enough for the next two weeks and look for one lesson a day, one single lesson, concept, idea, nugget, and commit to sharing it with another human being, not your dog, not your cat. Don't talk to the fishbowl. Talk to your co-workers, talk to your family members, talk to your spouse, and just ask permission if you can share an idea or concept that you've just learned with them, so that you can learn it better and make it more valuable for you.

I know it takes a little bit of commitment to ask people, but go ahead and do it. The best way to learn is to teach something you've just learned. Make the commitment, be a learner, be a teacher, and then become a better learner through the process. Thanks for watching and listening. I wish you all the best. Have a great day in the world. Take care go make money.
