Join Dave Crenshaw for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting the most from learning opportunities, part of Time Management Tips Weekly.
- Ever attended a great conference,…but just came away feeling overloaded?…Even watching a course like this where you're getting…lots of ideas and it's just too much for you…to take action on?…This is a significant problem,…because I believe that the shorter the distance…between you learning something and taking action on it,…the more successful you'll become.…This is why, before I give any speech to an audience,…I recommend that people don't take notes about what I say,…but take action.…
What do I mean by that?…First of all, I recommend that you listen for actions…while you're learning.…The question you want to ask yourself is,…what can I do about what I'm learning?…You can take notes on the wonderful things…that a speaker says to you;…however, what's more important are the wonderful things…that you say to you.…Those moments when you say,…I should do something about that,…those are the things that are most important…for you to write down.…Second, as you're taking notes,…you want to highlight actions.…
As you're going through the presentation,…
