Have you considered the difference …
Consuming vs. applying makes in your life?
By consuming I mean:
- Reading books on personal development.
- Listening to podcasts.
- Watching Ted Talks.
- Going to trainings.
By applying I mean:
Practicing the tools you learn when consuming.
Consider if you are only consuming,
If you aren’t practicing applying what you learned …
Then you are losing the value of what you consumed.
Consuming it great.
In fact, personal development is part of growth.
But if you don’t apply what you learned,
You will have a harder time creating the results you want.
Think of it like a smartphone.
I bet you use your smartphone for lots of things:
- Taking photos
- Searching the internet
- Catching up with friends
- Phone calls
I have an iPhone.
My mom has an iPhone.
I use my phone for all the above tasks.
My mom thinks of hers as just a phone.
She knows it has all those features.
The family has shown her how to use the features.
But she doesn’t practice/apply what she has learned.
So those skills are lost.
Ever wonder why you:
- Listen to podcasts
- Read books
- Go to workshops
But nothing in your life changes?
The answer could be because you aren’t applying.
So how can you apply what you consume?
Here are some tips:
- Schedule time in your calendar before you consume (go to a workshop, listen to a podcast, etc.) to apply (practice) what you learn.
- Make sure you schedule practice application time each day. It doesn’t have to be a lot of time. 10-15 minutes five times a week can make a big difference.
- Take notes when you are consuming. Use these notes to help you practice what you want to apply.
- Work with an accountability partner. Hold each other accountable for doing your daily application work.
