Lifelong learning is a choice I make. The week between Christmas and the new year is one of my most anticipated times of the year. My private consulting clients are mostly unplugged. It used to create an awkward void due to the lack of business needs. That is no longer the case. I am off to school.
Lifelong learning is a choice worth making.
I have discovered this “down-time” is a perfect time for me to upgrade my skills and explore new areas of knowledge. This year I will be learning more on two topics important to my growth.
The first course I am taking is on video production. I want to learn more about the use of “green-screen” techniques, lighting and audio to create more effective videos. Video and visuals are going to become even more important in sales and marketing in the months ahead.
My second project is to read about “Big Data and the promise it holds for business growth. The first one is Big Data, Analytics and the future of Marketing and Sales, currently free on Amazon as of this writing. The second book is The Big Data-Driven Business: How to Use Big Data to Win Customers, Beat Competitors and Boost Profits.
How will you be using the week between Christmas and New Year? What topics do you want to learn about to improve your personal and business success in the coming year. Let me know in the comments area below.
I look forward to hearing your plans. I wish you the very best this holiday season and throughout 2015. I’ll be back the first of the year.
