15 minutes of learning every day amounts to over 90 hours of learning a year. That’s more than 2 average working weeks.
Over 10 years it’s almost half a year! Imagine what you could achieve, learn and become in that time.
15 minutes isn’t a lot of time compared to how much time we spend “working”, and it’s short enough for you to do during a commute or as the first thing to do before checking emails.
I’ve curated a short list of places to go to help you with 15 minutes of learning.
- Watch a TED talk www.ted.com
- Read a blog article (here’s a good one – Reinforcing Learning in the Workplace )
- Watch a YouTube video
- Read up on a subject on Wikipedia (why not try this one – Lifelong Learning )
- Listen to a podcast
- Read – books, magazines, trade journal
- Talk to a colleague
- Complete an e-learning module
Please let me know if you have any more for my list or if there is anything that you would like to share with us?
I’m sure you do some of the things on the list without considering it as “learning” and that’s the beauty of this approach. On a singular basis, it doesn’t appear much however over time the accumulative effect on your knowledge, skills and behaviour will be significant.
Invest in your development and continue to learn.
