3 Habits of Lifelong Learners - Jeff Goins
Over the years, I've met many influential and successful people, and I've observed a common trait in nearly all of them: they were all lifelong learners. If you want to win at life, this is non-negotiable. You have to become teachable. And the more teachable you are, the more successful you become.

Realize How Little You Know

Realize How Little You Know

The more you learn, the more you realize you don’t know. And that’s a humbling realization.

If you want to be a learner, you have to appreciate the fact that you have much to learn. This is not false humility or some kind of feigned status. It is a mindset.

Be An Apprentice

Be An Apprentice
Excellence takes time, and to achieve it you have to adopt the mindset of an apprentice. To think like an apprentice:
  • Watch, listen and be present in the process.
  • Practice often instead of waiting for your Big Break.
  • Accept that few become great on their own and learn from whoever accepts to teach.
  • Offer to help the experienced in their missions. They will like you better and may become “patrons”.

Be Someone’s Case Study

Be Someone’s Case Study

Master the principles your potential mentor teaches and then share with them how it made an impact on your life, sometimes that’s enough to kickstart a relationship that becomes a mentorship.

This can work because you’re demonstrating that their teaching works which makes them more invested in you, as you display the value of their techniques and reputation.

Reading and continuous learning

Reading is one of the best sources of continuous learning. It allows your mind to grow, change and make new connections.

Highly successful learners read a lot: Elon Musk grew up reading two books a day, according to his brother. Bill Gates reads 50 books per year. Mark Zuckerberg reads at least one book every two weeks. Warren Buffett spends five to six hours per day reading five newspapers and 500 pages of corporate reports.

Learning as a process 

Learning is a journey, not a destination. It's a process of self-discovery, fueled by curiosity.

Learning is an investment that usually pays for itself in increased earnings. And in a fast-changing world, the learning skills quickly is becoming a necessity.

Education vs training

Until two decades ago, the general goal of colleges was for academic pursuits and teaching individuals to become more well-rounded. The general thought was that colleges were not vocational institutions.

Now, and possibly in the future, colleges will have to focus more on training and change their curriculum to meet the demands of employers.

Alternatives 

A four-year college education remains the best choice for those who can get admitted to a selective university. But for everyone else, an alternative path might be the best way to go.

In the future, one training path will be company-sponsored apprenticeship programs to cover the skills missing between the secondary system and what employers are looking for.

Be realistic

Dreaming is great, but if you want to accomplish some improvements, you need to make your dream more realistic.

Break your dream down into milestones: if you want to work from home, what steps do you need to take? Break those steps down further into actionable steps and start working towards making your dream a reality.
