Learn FAST

Time for a pop quiz.

How did Satya Nadella turn Microsoft around?

Answer: by shifting it’s culture from a “know-it-all” to a “learn-it-all”.

“Alright. That’s cute. And your point is…,” you might ask.

Only the fastest survive

The COVID crisis has many of us scrambling to use tools we might had previously scoffed at.

Clearly the ones finding their skills in demand during this period were the ones who were fast to learn, fast to adapt, and fast to respond.

It’s likely a foregone conclusion that working and learning online will continue in the post-COVID economy.

What does that mean for you and I?

Learn from the masters

via BCG:

The best way to build a new skill is to use it every day.

The masters practice their craft every day. Amateurs, on the other hand, allow their feelings to dictate their decisions.

Here’s where we want to learn from the masters.

While we’re at it, let’s not stop at learning.

Each day choose to:

  • Focus on a new skill you want to learn
  • Apply it by practicing daily
  • Synthesize with per-existing knowledge
  • Teach others to do the same.

Choose to learn FAST.
