“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever”
— Mahatma Gandhi
My friend Amit who owns a company decided to learn every day for three hours to stay focused until his son was born and it disturbed his ritual.
So he made some changes in his to-do list and again started learning three hours a day along with managing his company.
So there is no excuse to learn to find time from your daily schedule and make it a ritual to learn every day.
You can do it while traveling, sitting idle, or during lunch breaks. Even 20 minutes a day will add 200 hours to a year.
Learning should never be considered a luxury when it actually is a necessity.
Even the most successful and busiest people read at least an hour a day. What stops you from learning then?
Follow these three steps to create a learning ritual:
- Find time for learning even if you are totally busy and booked. You know you can do it.
- Once you find your time of learning make sure to stay consistent and avoid any kind of distractions.
- After you learn, try to apply those skills wherever you can so you may be rewarded for your time and consistency.
In the process of learning don’t forget to have little breaks to calm your soul. But make sure not to give up.
