I remember listening to a Brian Tracy cassette back in the 80s.
“Successful people are continuous learners” or something to that effect was the lesson.
Never stop learning.
I’m always listening to an online course, a podcast or an audio book.
I’ve surpassed that magical 10,000 hour mark in many topics.
I’m an expert in so many areas (that’s what I tell myself LOL).
My wife Ellen jokes “Aren’t you fixed yet?”
I spend a lot of time learning.
My problem is I don’t always implement what I learn.
What good is knowledge if you don’t turn that knowledge into results?
Maybe it stems from the way we learn in school.
I hated sitting in class listening to theory that we never implemented.
We had to memorize theory so we could pass one test…
…then on to the next useless lesson.
When I took a break from college, I attended a computer electronics school.
In the morning they taught us theory.
In the afternoon we built what we learned about.
LEARN —>> IMPLEMENT immediately.
I was in heaven.
When I was growing up, I drove my mother crazy.
I was always taking things apart and putting them back together.
I used to take apart her kitchen radio and put it back together.
I was always fixing things around the house.
I used to assemble model cars and airplanes without reading the instructions.
In case you were wondering, I don’t need to read maps or ask for directions either (that's Ellen snickering in the background).
The LEARN —>> IMPLEMENT method was what I needed.
For the past 10 years, I’ve been teaching my Linked Accelerator program.
Thousands of you have invested in my LinkedIn course.
Unfortunately, many of you never implemented what I taught.
Some of you paid and never logged into the course or attended the live calls.
It frustrates me when I hand you a proven system but you don’t IMPLEMENT.
So I was thinking…
What if I turned the traditional learning model upside down?
Traditional courses work like this:
- You watch a training video once a week or attend a live webinar
- Every week there is a Q&A call where you can ask questions
The problem with this model is you hate homework or don’t make it a priority.
Nobody makes time to watch a one hour video then implement what you learned.
The problem with Q&A sessions is many of the questions are very generic like “How do I log into the members area?”
Often you know more than the instructor so the course is a waste of your time.
What if my Linked Accelerator course worked like this:
- Attend a one hour class once a week
- I teach for 20 minutes
- You go into breakout rooms to implement what you learned
- You get instant feedback from me and the group
In one hour per week, you’re implementing my proven LinkedIn system.
LEARN —>> IMPLEMENT —>> INSTANT FEEDBACK
Linked Accelerator 2.0 is coming (yes it really is!)
