Stop learning more skills and put into action what you’ve already learned.
Sounds counterproductive doesn’t it?
We are told to constantly learn new things to enhance our knowledge. Unfortunately, without mastering the skills you’ve learned in the past the new acquired information isn’t going to be of help to you either.
Oh but that new course that you have your eye on, that’s going to be the one right? The one that’ll transform you into a super mega star?
And in a short time you will be looking for something new to learn because the old stuff isn’t cutting it.
Yeah, I see it all the time. Certifications, courses, books, seminars…they are all fantastic…if you do something with the information.
But the majority of info junkies just keep buying the various shiny objects and never do anything with the information they learn. So they buy the next one, then the next one…hoping each new purchase will be that thing that makes them millions.
Think of how you are learning…and compare it to how a Black Belt learns. A student studying to achieve Black Belt status isn’t given the next lesson until he/she has shown they’ve mastered the previous lessons. To learn the next lessons without fully understanding or appreciating the value those lessons teach makes the student vulnerable in the art of self defense.
When you learn too many things without fully understanding the concepts you risk making your whole business vulnerable.
So again, stop learning more skills and put into action what you’ve already learned.
