Continue to learn

Grow or die. This is true both in nature — a plant that stops to grow is dead — or in business. Progress is required to be able to adapt to the constant changes in the world around us. We as individuals all need to keep developing ourselves too. I believe every person should strive to become the best version of themselves. Also taking into account the fact that we are all different. I think learning to deal with these differences effectively is a great point to start. But how do people learn? There are in essence two ways.

Trial and error

The first is learning by doing. Experimenting and finding out what works and what doesn’t. Here the universal law is pretty easy: if you keep doing what you always did, you will keep getting what you always got. So if you want different results, you need to try out new things. Yes. That can be scary. But remember that all the magic happens outside your comfort zone. And once you have expanded it in one direction, it automatically expands to all other areas in life. But before you book your first skydive, let’s look at the other way people learn.

Mimic succes

If you follow the recipe of a master-chef by the letter — perhaps after you have watched him prepare the dish and tasted it — you can cook just as good. The second way to learn is to modulate and learn from the master. Of course a chef might cut faster and more precise then you. And intuitively knows which flavours work together. These are skills he (or she) build up in the kitchen. But if you copy all the steps precisely you will get the same result. Every. Single. Time.

Ask for the recipe

Don’t be afraid to ask for the recipe. Ask people who have achieved the goal you ar after how they did it. What is there secret? How an you adapt that to your own goals? With transferable thinking, you can experiment with new ways to get what you are after. Or simply follow in their footsteps and literally do whatever they have done to get the succes they got. Both ways will lead to growth.
