How I Make Sure I Use What I Learn

Andrew Van De Beek

Founder & Head of Purpose

The most frustrating part about learning, however, is when we don’t use it. All that knowledge without any benefit for the future me.

Every day I learn something new. Whether it’s from a book, or a podcast, a member of my team or just my four year old pulling out some interesting fact, I am always learning something new.

The most frustrating part about learning, however, is when we don’t use it. All that knowledge without any benefit for the future me.

A few things that I do to help me take action on what I’m learning:

  1. I take a brain dump day. Once every three months I sit down with coloured cards, each representing a key area. This could be; team, clients, processes, and so on. I then record what’s been in my head but not yet on paper. 
  2. Each day I write down one things I’ve learned. I’m still practising this one..
  3. I ask more questions than I answer.
  4. Make things fun. When there is a challenge and something to overcome, I find I rise up and take it head on.

There are so many opportunities for learning. So many great ideas, so many new ways of doing things, so many new technologies. But without a plan it just becomes more noise, noise that we never do anything about. 

How do you ensure what you learn becomes actionable and beneficial?
