Reflect on Your Learning by Writing
*** Learn how to expand your knowledge base by reading and interface with known intelligent people!
You soak up a ton of information and patterns, and you can put that into action, but when you sit down and reflect on what you’ve learned, and try to share that with others (as I’m doing right now), you force yourself to think deeply, to synthesize the knowledge and to organize it, much as you do when you teach it to others. Blogging is a great tool for reflection and sharing what you’ve learned, even if you don’t hope to make a living at it. And it’s free.
** Blogging is key to expanding your knowledge!
Writing expands our vocabulary, which has been shown to be directly correlated with success. Any career that involves people (that’s all of them isn’t it) is based on solid communication with a firm grasp of vocabulary and knack for self-expression.
Commit to Lifelong Learning
One of the best ways to gain knowledge is through self-education. Period. It doesn’t matter if you’re sitting in a college classroom or a coffee shop. As long as you are genuinely interested in what you are studying, don’t stop. Make the most of your time and get the best education you can offer yourself.
People who take the time and initiative to pursue knowledge on their own are the only ones who earn a real education in this world. Take a look at any widely acclaimed scholar, entrepreneur or historical figure you can think of.
Formal education or not, you’ll find that he or she is a product of continuous self-education.
Lifelong learning will get most of your questions answered.
You don’t even have to commit long hours every day to learn. Whatever time you decide to put in your own education, stick to it.
What are the most interesting topics you wish to know more about? The goal here is to find as many sources of ideas and knowledge as possible. Brain Pickings is a good place to start. It’s one of my favorites. And it’s free. Go subscribe and you won’t be disappointed.
Find other blogs, websites or online courses that can broaden your horizon. Read expert opinions about topics of interest on Quora (/ˈkwɔːrə/) is an American question-and-answer website where questions are asked, answered, followed, and edited by Internet users, either factually or in the form of opinions..
It’s a game-changer in the world of question and answer websites. Look for answers to some of your most important questions at places people normally ignore.
