Developing a Learning Mindset

I was feeling a bit tired at the end of the day at work today and thought it may be a good idea to watch some videos in LinkedIn Learning. 

I looked through my saved list of courses for a light one and decided to watch Developing a Learning Mindset that is only about 30 minutes long. 

I am no beginner in learning but I thought I would still learn something from this beginners course. 

Yes, I certainly did. 

What Gary Bolles said here in the course really resonated with me. 

One of the exercises he recommended was to build my own Learning Inventory. I took time to fill up this sheet provided and I'm still thinking of what I can still add on to it. 

Someone asked me what's the reason for doing this. 

I told her that I agree with Gary Bolles when he said that we always underestimate what we have learnt and what we know. This exercise will show the immense knowledge and experience each of us has. 

The other thing is that we always don't see how unique we are. We all know different things and have different experiences. We need to be proud of who we are and the learnings that we have uniquely accumulated in all those years.

And with that, we continue learning even more. 

Would you also complete your own Learning Inventory and share it with me.
