This time of year is the ultimate work-life disruptor, causing a loss in momentum across a number of areas and making healthier habits an effort to re-establish in the new year. Learning, being one of those.
The next few weeks truly test our habits as professionals. Our ability to manage time and commitments. To continue to get things done in our personal and professional life.
It is also a time of year when some of the better habits we have developed over the year, tend to drop off.
What might seem like a short pause, can leave you to really lose momentum on things that would otherwise set you up for success in the year ahead. Learning is one of those things.
The truth is this is the ‘best’ time of year to get around to completing those topics in the Knowledge Centre. To take advantage on the quieter moments between Christmas and New Year (for those working through) to brush up on areas you’ve been meaning to improve on during the year.
Develop a plan of attack.
Be consistent. Be disciplined. Set yourself small goals in your Learning Journal. Aim for 30 minutes three times a week to learn something new, or revisit previous topics.
Celebrate small accomplishments which you can track through Professional Development Points.
Momentum in studying is pivotal for success. So embrace this time to catch up, review, and build your knowledge. Through dedication, planning, and a focus on achievements, you can carry forward your momentum into the new year, positioning yourself for continued growth and success in 2024 and beyond.
