In todays rapidly moving world, if you are not constantly learning, you are not standing still, you are falling behind. The best way to keep up, to stay effective as a leader, is to continue learning.

Read books, listen to podcasts, and learn from others regularly. It is important to meet new people, discover new places, do new things, learn new skills, whenever you can.
Even if you are out of school, this time of year usually signals a shift, an opportunity to learn something new, build skills, and work toward a new goal. Just because school is over does not mean that you have learned everything and you can stop learning now.
Read anything and everything, as much as often as you can, and you will learn a lot. It is also a lot easier to learn more about a topic that you are already interested in. You might want to start learning about something totally new you do not know anything about.
No matter how clever you believe you are, there is always more to learn. Whatever it is that is beggared from inside of that brain of yours, know that pace in life is the key to staying curious about learning at all times. Once you exhaust your mind creatively, your inner self will beg you to learn something new.
On days that I do not feel like I have learned anything, I turn to the little book that I wrote called Live, Learn, and Pass it On. I have a thirst for knowledge, and I try to slake that thirst by learning.
I think that in this changing world, the greatest compliment you can pay an individual is to say they are students of something, constantly striving to learn and grow.

As a leader, a manager, or an employee, it can be tempting to feel like you have learned everything there is to know; but learning and growth are not only reserved for the epochs of college careers. What makes leadership a rich experience is the continual growing and learning as you lead the company and work with others. You are going to solve problems, you are going to grow, you are going to help others - that makes learning one of the most important things you can do as a leader. We all learn best differently, and depending on your lifestyle and goals, some methods might be a better fit than others.
I learned that if you want to be promoted, you need to do things that make you noticed. I have learned that if you wait until everything is perfect before acting, you will never act. As you embark on your life of learning, be sure to keep curiosity alive. Often, simply finding someone whose way of living their life fascinates you will help you grow in ways you did not expect.
