Join Gary Bolles for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps in your learning journey, part of Developing a Learning Mindset.
- Okay, you've completed your learning inventory and done a few exercises to expand your thinking about what it takes to get motivated to learn. Now it's time to take those insights and move forward in your learning journey. Of course, you may be worrying that inertia has taken over and that even with the motivation to learn, it's hard for you to get moving. Now, you may remember from your high school science class that the law of inertia means that a body at rest tends to stay at rest. But we often forget the other property of inertia, which is once a body is in motion, it tends to stay in motion.
So here's your opportunity. Take all that you've learned about yourself from your learning inventory and use that as the motivation to nudge yourself forward to taking action. If you need some help, take your learning inventory and use it in my other course on getting started on your learning journey. But if you're on fire now to jump into your learning process, then, by all means, go get started. Good luck.
