Here at LNE Consulting (Hollywood, FL) we believe that if you truly want to be successful, you need to constantly seek out new ways to learn and grow.
College is an excellent place to grasp complicated concepts and develop new learning techniques. However, once you’ve graduated, lessons aren’t thrown at you every single day. In other words, new information comes to you in college, yet when you leave, you need to make an effort to find it on your own. This can be difficult because, well, life is busy. The hunger for knowledge can be replaced with job hunt anxiety and a plethora of real world problems. Don’t be mistaken: this hunger can never stop if you really desire success!
LNE Consulting has come up with 3 ways for you to keep learning even after you have left college!
1. Build your vocabulary
We learned fundamental vocabulary in grade school and it increased in complexity in middle school and high school. However, rarely are there college classes where you focus solely on expanding your vocabulary. Although you probably built a solid lexicon through years of pursuing your degree, it is important to remember that there are dictionaries full of words you have never seen before. A wonderful way to continue your hunt for knowledge after college is to build on your vocabulary and never stop!
2. Find a mentor
Mentors are experienced and trusted advisors who will help you move in the right direction. Being able to have someone who knows the ropes and wants you to succeed is invaluable. You will be able to learn a lot through their successes and failures while also augmenting your career. Our people at LNE Consulting can tell you all about the benefits of having a reliable mentor!
3. Listen to podcasts
Listening to podcasts on your commute or while you are exercising is a fabulous way to learn new information. The best part? They’re free right on your smartphone! There is a seemingly infinite amount of podcasts out there covering everything from finance, to ancient history, to complicated sciences. They can boost your knowledge with minimal effort, making you an expert in conversation and jack of all trades!
