LIFELONG LEARNING

Lifelong learning is defined as all learning activity undertaken throughout life, with the aim of improving knowledge, skills and competences within a personal, civic, social and employment-related perspective. Constant change is the new normal. In order to survive and thrive, organizations and individuals must be able to adjust, and enhance their knowledge and skills to meet evolving needs. This means the most important thing someone can learn is how to learn. Peter Drucker said "We now accept the fact that learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change. And the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn." Learning doesn't stop when we graduate from school. Albert Einstein said "Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school." He also said "Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease at death." Socrates said "Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel." Mahatma Ghandhi said " Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." Leonardo da Vinci said "Learning never exhausts the mind." Benjamin Franklin said "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." So how do we become a lifelong learner?

Business Learning 2017 – Reading Continues After College

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.”  ― Henry Ford

The most common advice you hear from highly successful people is to read often, and always be learning more. Typically they are talking about reading for education, like business books, or biographies of other successful people. There is ample evidence of the power of knowledge.

You can learn so much reading about other great business minds, from how they think to their habits. The curious mind of entrepreneurs is a common theme in many good business books. How a business is built, to overcoming obstacles. In business if you are saddled with a problem, it is likely someone has previously experienced the same issue. If you read enough you can learn their process and apply it to your business. 

I often look do a search online for the books successful business people recommend. Most of the books are about business but there are always a few on each list that are about life. One thing I note is if a book keeps showing up on multiple lists then I probably should read it.

Examples of Books I keep seeing are:

It contributes to the unique social and psychological environment of an organization. Organizational culture represents the collective values, beliefs and principles of its members. It is the product of its history, product, market, technology, strategy, types of employees and management style.

Radio Tips

The Goal

 

Can you keep a blind man’s attention?

 

That is your challenge, and goal as a radio host. A successful talk radio show is both informative and entertaining. If you are informative only, you will be dry and boring. If you are entertaining only, a listener comes away with nothing new of value to them.

 

And that blind man or woman (which is every radio listener) can’t be informed or entertained by your charts or graphs or pictures. You’re on the radio! There are no visuals, other than what images you can paint in the listener’s mind with your voice. There’s nothing to hang on to, but your every word…So make every word count!

FOURTH OF JULY HISTORY

The Fourth of July commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain. Actually, the legal separation of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain occurred on July 2, 1776, when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence that had been proposed in June by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia declaring the United States independent from Great Britain. After voting for independence, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, a statement explaining this decision, which had been prepared by a Committee of Five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author. Congress debated revising the wording of the Declaration, finally approving it on July 4th.
