A man only learns in two ways, one by reading, and the other by association with smarter people. Will Rogers
This experience hit home in many ways as I am in process of learning new skills,reviewing my learning style and my competency approach.But I am also taking my career to the next level and I need to be able to recap my personal development.As we all know,learning is a journey and it replicates throughout of few stages of self development however there are external factors that have an impact into our learning process.
One of factor related to learning includes learning from peer colleagues,mentors,coaches and experienced professionals in their fields.Although I consider myself a very strong opponent in my area of expertise ,recently I had the experience to share knowledge with some major players in the health care field.The experience was totally new and overwhelming.I felt connected and fully engaged into the process.I also done some reflective practice about my learning curve and how beneficial the experience meant to me.
As I had the opportunity to participate in a joint evaluation of some of the heath care standards I felt invested and loved every single seconds spent there.Along the journey I met amazing individuals,made new friends and learnt tons from my colleagues.The shared experience put me into the position to carve my hunger of knowledge to the deepest layer of curiosity and that made me to realise that I want more.I was just proof testing never mind fully challenged!!
I am a middle aged adult and I am aware that I could experience setback,stagnation or I could accumulate the need to surrogate the self -absorptions of learning which is readily available.I just need to grab it and start to get into the gear.Career and work are very important to me as I took greater responsibilities and control in my role.I am also aware that if I wish to take my career to the next level I could experience major life shifts but I am fully certain that the journey is a life time investment but I will let the experience speak for itself. I took the time to think what work best for me and at this point in my life I want to know what is out there,how much I could assimilate and how I will put this knowledge into practice and I wonder what life could bring next.As for now I could not thank enough to the the amazing people who made this experience a reality.
”Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realise this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward. Henry Ford’’
My advice to you is that you should take risks,make new friends and continue to learn.Dream big and dare to challenge your dreams.Once you have the beliefs in your true powers life will change and dreams become reality.
