Acquiring New Skills- The Learning Curve

As I get older, I’ve realized the importance of continuing to learn new things. We live and work in an ever-changing world and there are always new challenges presenting themselves. I’ve also become increasingly aware of how easy getting stuck in a rut can be, and things I’ve done in the past that have worked for me, may not be as efficient today as they have been before. As well, acquiring new knowledge and skills can be valuable, not only professionally but personally. Your brain needs it, as much as your spirit.

Common Learning Facts

  1. 95% of people think that learning about new things boosts your confidence (National Adult Learning Survey, DfEE, 1998)

  2. 92% of people think that learning about new things is enjoyable (National Adult Learning Survey, DfEE, 1998)

  3. Seven in ten adults (71%) think that learning can lead to a better quality of life (Attitudes to Learning, Campaign for Learning/MORI, 1996)

  4. Employers invested 10.6 billion in training in 1993 (The Learning Age, DfEE, 1998)

  5. 93% of us believe that it’s never too late to learn

  6. 83% of us believe that learning will become more important in the next millennium

  7. 72% of us think we should devote more time to personal development

How do you learn new things?

What tools do you use? There are so many resources available out there today and they cater to your learning style, so why not make a little effort to learn something new today?

  1. Try teaching what you’ve learned to a friend

  2. Instead of struggling to try to remember an answer, look it up

  3. Take online tests

  4. Learn in different ways that you’re not used to

  5. Improve your memory with games online

  6. Visualize it

  7. Make learning a game

  8. Use your hands

  9. Join groups that interest you
