Perhaps you want to achieve career growth in the company in which you are currently working, or you want to change the career path. Or maybe you want to have your own business, or just to be a well-read person. Whatever your goal is, begin learning.
Self-development not only improves brain functioning, but it also increases your value in the labor market.
To get started, learn how to set aside time for self-development. You should not have excuses. Even if your workday is full of tasks that need to be completed, take the time to read a book, listen to a podcast, and watch educational videos. There is a principle called Compound Effect
, which states: "No matter how small your efforts are, if you do it all the time - it adds up and before you know it, you've mastered a new skill.
Again, you should not have excuses. You can use the time you spent on commuting or news feed on Facebook or Instagram.
If you have difficulty with self-discipline, then you can apply the 90/90/1 rule
, which was invented by the famous business coach, speaker, and writer Robin Sharma. The basic idea is this: within the next 90 days, start spending the first 90 minutes of your work time on one lesson that you think will be important and crucial for your life. Applying this rule, in 90 days your brain will already be trained by this type of activity and will perceive it as a habit.
