“I get motivated when I’m at a conference, but after it’s over nothing really changes. What am I doing wrong?”
Mindset is everything. In this case, a productive mindset is to enter every conference, or any learning opportunity, with your focus on action.
Here are a few quick ways you can shift from passively listening to actively learning:
- Don’t take notes—write down actions instead.
- Highlight the actions, put a checkbox, or star next to them for quick reference later.
- Process those actions afterward by scheduling them in your calendar.
By taking action, you’re getting the most out of every learning opportunity!
