Learning something new daily helps me to grow and thrive. Whether in a project, on my own, in a conversation, in a community. It is not necessarily work-related most of the time, something of interest or fun. It could be learning more about a city, a living place, an exhibition, or a new artefact to inspire and nurture my curiosity.
I bring newness because I have a personalized modern learning mindset, skillset, and analogue and digital tools. In that way, I can keep up fast and easily with my industry, profession and interests continuously. But, of course, I do so outside them, too.
I use daily:
Feedly to dive into blog posts of people that I find interesting. Then, I can engage via Twitter / in person by sharing and commenting on their content with discernment.
I subscribe to podcasts to track what’s happening in topics of interest such as workplace learning, self-efficacy, work and learning futures, news on gastronomy, artful, professional and technological places to explore in Paris, community management, curious creatives.
Twitter lists – mines created publicly and privately and those from interesting people – dive deep into what is interesting for people and organizations in a specific industry or topic, in a country or from a global community.
Youtube channels or playlists to keep up with game-changing ideas and initiatives.
Last but not least, I read a few slow journalism prints to go slow and deep on a topic.
In a nutshell, I use different formats to learn something new every day. I go with the knowledge flows. The intent is to celebrate and document my daily learnings. It is also a way to activate my learning when it is time to do so.
