Message from my mentor on 5 ways to keep learning without going back to school
#5: Sign Up For A Course
Like I said before, you don’t have to go back to school to continue to learn.
But if you find that you learn information better when you’re in a more formal environment, you might consider signing up for an educational course online, through a local workshop, or at a community college focused on practical applications..
This might seem like a no-brainer, but the sad fact is, a good number of adults don’t even finish a single book in a year. In fact, according to Pew Research, 27% of adults never read or even started reading a book in 2015. Conversely, highly successful people read each day.
#3: Listen To Podcasts
Don’t have time to read or maybe it’s just not the best way for you to consume information? Try a podcast instead. The great thing about podcasts is that you can listen to them anywhere — on your morning commute to work, on an airplane, or even when you’re cooking dinner or doing chores around the house.
#2: Play Games
People often ask how playing a game could possibly continue your education. I just point them to our CASHFLOW® board game.
We created CASHFLOW® as a way for people to practice what they’d learned about financial literacy without putting any real money on the line. The best way to learn is by doing, so why not play games to practice your newfound knowledge before opening up your wallet?
#1: Build New Relationships
The amount of information we learn from other people is astounding. In fact, you’ve learned all of life’s most important lessons from other people. You learned how to walk and talk from your parents and you learned social skills on the playground from other children.
Every time you meet someone new you learn something.
Everyone has their own wealth of knowledge gleaned from their own unique backgrounds and experiences. Sometimes, the greatest way to learn something new is by taking someone to lunch and just having a conversation.
Even if it’s something small, try learning at least one new thing a day.
By keeping in mind that you should always be learning, you’ll easily continue your education and make strides toward the financial freedom you yearn for.
