Knowledge abundance can be counterproductive.
If you struggle to remember what you learn, there’s a simple approach that makes learning less overwhelming and easier to remember.
Lifelong learners pick up knowledge on-demand. Slowly but consistently, they learn new things to build a better life and work smarter.
“Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.” Albert Einstein once said.
If you want to learn new skills but don’t want to disrupt your calendar completely, you can accumulate knowledge as you go.
Just-in-time (JIT)learning means picking up relevant skills when you need them. That also means don’t learn email marketing until you are ready to use it.
“Convenience, accessibility, relevance, efficiency, and engagement: just-in-time learning embodies the hallmarks of a memorable learning experience,” writes the team at SHIFT eLearning.
It’s a powerful approach to think of learning as something that happens almost all the time but as and when you need to apply that knowledge.
