This looks like a simple question. It isn’t.
But it’s the question one of my favorite virtual mentors (Mike Kim) asks himself once he starts traveling back home after a conference.
I usually just zip out to the parking lot, quickly start up my car, and begin poking around the radio dial trying to find a “sports talk” station.
No one ever told me I was supposed to keep on thinking well after the conference is over.
What the heck?!?
I thought I was on top of things just blogging a bit following the excellent MSPRA seminar I attended last Thursday.
But Mike says you should never stop asking that all-important post-conference question, though.
“What are you learning right now?”
And you shouldn’t just make it a one-and-done kind of activity.
You should ponder the question regularly.
That’s all I need.
One more life habit I should try to be much better at!
And wouldn’t you know it?
Mike makes it look all so easy.
After he got back from a recent conference, he wrote up these three learnings.
1. Where your focus goes, your energy goes.
2. Confusion repels, clarity attracts.
3. Promote before you produce.
They’re not only good.
I’m guessing his conference must’ve been a real short one.
How else could he compose three takeaways in only 14 words?
I go off to MSPRA and I need at least 300.
I think I discovered yet one more life habit I should try to be much better at!
