You listen to this podcast because you have a desire to grow and learn. But WHY do you want to learn? And what does it mean to create a “lifestyle of learning”?
In today’s episode, Holly and I continue in our Wellness Series by sharing 3 principles that will help you build a lifestyle of learning. Part of personal wellness is staying healthy mentally, emotionally, and even intellectually, so we want to dive into how to create some of these habits.
Why Learning is Important
Learning isn’t just about having information, but about developing wisdom with the information we learn. The Bible tells us over and over to gain wisdom and knowledge (Proverbs 1:7, 4:6-7, 8:12).
What is a “lifestyle of learning”?
We’re not talking about making drastic changes like going back to college or spending hours every day studying. We don’t mean that you suddenly become someone who has all kinds of knowledge about life and leadership. A lifestyle of learning means making mindset shifts and small habit changes to continue to grow and learn on an ongoing basis.
The Three Principles to Build a Lifestyle of Learning 1st Principle: Stay Curious
2nd Principle: Stay Coachable
3rd Principle: Stay Connected
How to Practically Build a Lifestyle of Learning
For me, I listen to podcasts, read the Bible, take courses that cover specific areas where I want to improve and invest in a life coach for clarity and support.
For Holly, she listens to podcasts, studies the Bible, gets certifications in areas that impact her business, and understands that some things will come more naturally or be easier for her than others.
Building a lifestyle of learning does not have to be complicated. It may just mean a few mindset shifts to help you stay curious, coachable, and connected.
It also doesn’t have to take up a huge chunk of time. When you integrate some of these ideas into your daily routine, you’ll learn while doing things you normally do.
Building a lifestyle of learning does mean that we are intentional, just like we talked about on our initial wellness episodes. One way that you can be intentional about growing as a leader is to join the Confident Leader Club.
