Principles and methods of self-learning

  The only thing everyone agreed upon that the learning never ends. There is always more to learn. There’s always more to discover. If you’re not learning, you’re dying, literally. here, we try to mention principles of self-learning that maybe help. 

Principles of self-learning

1- Learn who you are

Know your strengths, passions, weaknesses, talents, gifts, values, experiences, successes, failures. Dig inside yourself and test it all. Learn what you love. Constantly pay attention to the things that excite you. Notice which people who inspire and motivate you to be a better person. Catch yourself dreaming about the business you wish you would have started. 

2- convenient environment

If your job, hobby or passion doesn’t require you to constantly learn then something’s wrong. Make it a must and you can’t help but grow. Put yourself in situations where learning is required to survive and thrive.

3- Teaching others

There is no better indication of true knowledge than when you can genuinely help and teach someone else the material.. Give and give. You know things that others want to know. Identify that and find a way to offer it. Use a blog, the web, a community group, anything. Trade knowledge. If you can teach something to someone else, chances are they can teach something to you too.

4- Be careful who you learn from

The only problem with our new world of self-guided education is that there is more absolute crap available to learn than ever before. There are several books being published, blogs being created and courses being offered today. Your time and your mind are precious. Find a way to filter what you consume.

5- adapted to the lives of learners

The first principle is that programs should be congruent with an of learning life, the natural ways we learn and the unique methods by which each of us learns best. from birth to death we live lives of learning, learning to function, then to live well and finally to make a difference.

Our success depends upon the range, depth, and quality of the learning we achieve. Each of us exhibits and develops these natural capacities in an individual way according to the talents we are endowed with, the experiences we encounter, the strengths that we discover, the interests that begin to direct and motivate us and the patterns of learning that we develop.

6- Try every medium

There are so many ways for us to learn. Read books and articles, listen to tapes and seminars, watch videos and presentations (TED Talks are a great place to start), write down ideas and stories.

7- Get in arguments

Find people who will test your ideas. People who will question your beliefs and help you see things from angles you may have been blind to on your own. It’s amazing how certain we can be of things right up until someone provides a more compelling answer. Be confident enough to stand up for what you believe, but be open enough to know when you’re wrong.
