Most people stop reading when they graduate from college and the graduation signals the stop of their education. I recommend others to read more but reading more without taking action can also be disastrous for one’s personal growth journey.
Read Religiously But At The Right Time
It is appropriate and normal for you to start reading about a new skill that you want to acquire. Learning from books is one of the best ways to acquire any skills that you want.
Most people don’t read and they stop finding ways to grow themselves. However, some people waste too much time reading that they got stuck in consuming information and not applying it.
One big mistake one can make is to stop reading and learning. Another mistake would be to read and not do anything with the new found information.
You can read all you need about starting an online business but it isn’t going to happen unless you put the knowledge into good use. You can also read all about fitness, simplicity, personal development and losing weight but nothing will happen unless you stop reading and start applying your new knowledge. Reading helps you to get the understanding of the subject but nothing will happen when all you do is read and not taking action.
The Key To Getting Results Fast
The key to learning anything fast is to learn and do it at the same time. I am learning how to write sales letter for my upcoming new ebook. It is something new that I never did before and I bought a course that teaches me how to write sales letter.
Another thing that I did is I go through each module and apply everything new that I had picked up immediately. Learning and applying what I picked up at the same time means that I will get quicker results because anything new that I learn will be quickly put into action.
What You Can Learn From This
1. Learn What You Need Only When You Need It
Don’t start learning something when you are not ready to apply it. Don’t start learning about marketing a blog when you don’t even have a blog yet. Learning how to set up a blog will be a better choice.
Don’t spend so much time consuming information when you are not ready to apply anything. You will simply end up forgetting everything and you will need to waste time to re-read what you had read before.
2. Apply Something Immediately When You Learn Something
It is harder to recall what we learn through reading and listening compared to actually doing it. The knowledge sticks with you when you learn and apply it immediately.
Whatever you read, find a way to apply it immediately. This helps to build momentum and the bonus is that you will get faster results too.
