Just In Time Learning - Deepstash

Just In Time Learning

Just-in-time learning means allowing yourself to only learn about the things and get excited about the things that are related to the next thing that’s on your list.

To avoid missing out on lucrative opportunities, bookmark those ideas for later and after your current goal, you can delve into them.

In most cases, you’re not going to go back to them. By the time you’re ready to move on to something else; guess what? There’s even better and newer material that comes out.

“A lot of times seeing something new and exciting is easy to go toward because it’s new and exciting. When you get into the grind, and you’re actually in the inner workings of this business that you once said yes to, well, that starts to become a drag”

Comparison is incredibly useful in discerning different experiences and lessons other people have learned, but not when it’s used for negative purposes.

When you get involved in a business community, especially in the beginning, you may wonder why you’re not as successful? Avoid that sort of thinking.

Every single person is at a different point in the journey of their life.

We need to be comparing ourselves to ourselves yesterday, to ourselves last week, to ourselves last month.

  • The most cost-effective method of diving deep is simply having conversations with your target market to see if they like what you’re thinking about.
  • On the flip side, some people are too cautious and will research their market without taking decisive action thinking that they must prepare for every possible scenario
  • The biggest lessons often come from being in the field rather than strategizing plans from the armchair.

The time you save by outsourcing tasks to people who are more efficient at it will make you more money than the money you save by doing it yourself

You have to understand that your time is precious and that there are likely other and more important things to do.

This applies to non-business related activities too. You may not even realize the time you’re spending on social media every day, every week until you have the numbers staring at you.

For example, If you hire someone to take care of the administrative tasks you can free up time to focus on expanding and being even more successful.

  • Every great business idea starts with the belief in one’s own self, but you can’t just stop at pure belief 
  • Once you have a good idea you have to move forward with the process of validating that idea with concrete evidence
  • Dive deep into discovering what the problems, and the pains, and the concerns are, of your target audience. And this means yes, doing some research upfront.

  • Entrepreneurs don’t have a true ‘clock-out’ time and that’s why it’s mandatory to enforce it yourself.
  • Even supremely confident entrepreneurs who view themselves as unstoppable machines must recognize that machines must be maintained or they break down.
  • This doesn’t mean you can’t occasionally put the pedal to the metal when the time calls for it though.

If scalling your product is ultimately dependent on having a large group of users, then you have a chicken or egg dilemma. You fell like the magic feature just can’t come to fruition until you have a large userbase.

This is a cold start problem, on network effect consumer products (eg. LinkedIn)

Information is useful only to the extent that you can find it when you need it. 

For a non-paginated pad, you can:

  • Put page numbers on the upper-right of each right-hand page but not on the left (e.g., 1, 2, 3, etc.). 
  • Whenever you complete a page, put the page number in an index on the inside cover (front or back) and a few words to describe the content.
  • The page numbers in the index do NOT need to be in order, as you’ll be scanning for content, then referring to the page.

Finding the Ikigai

The odyssey plan:

  • What would my life look like 5 years from now if I continued on the same path that I am on
  • What could be an alternate path that I could take if the upper plan fails
  • What would my life look like 5 years from now if money and society were not factors
  • Focusing on these questions and your answers if you will be able to introspect what are you doing with your life currently 
  • And how close are you from the third path because if you are doing something that people consider as work and you consider as play and get paid for it 
  • THAT's THE THING THAT YOU WOULD LOVE TO DO
