“Learning is a never-ending journey.” Who said that? If you replied or thought, “You just did,” then you are correct. It is a mantra which I embraced a long time ago. For me, learning is not about the quantity, nor how many hours I can sit in one session. Rather, it’s a commitment that every day I will learn something new, no matter how big or small that might be. Just a single little lesson or realization can move the dial forward, or be the key to unlocking new possibilities and ideas.
I am often asked, “when is the best time to study?” Mornings are the time I block out of my day to ‘headphone up’ and remove all distractions because for me, the mornings are when I feel the most engaged. That is also why I do my leg workouts at the gym on Monday’s when I am the most motivated. The end of the day, or the end of the week never has worked for me. However, YMMV (your mileage may vary) for study… or your squat routine.
My study days at the beginning of my career involved borrowing books, PDFs from Cisco’s website, or anything I can put on a flash drive. But now the digital revolution of learning is here! Now it’s possible to learn directly from experts! Cisco has Connected Learning running until June 30th where you can meet with Cisco experts for this extended learning opportunity. These digital sessions offer in-depth training on specific topics, hosted on Webex.
