Learning is exciting and fun (even with the discomfort in learning new skills that are at first difficult). Learning is crucial for everyone, regardless of age. We grow our mind’s knowledge and renew our spirit’s freshness with learning. Our skills increase. Our ability to compete and survive is enhanced through learning something new.
In the process of building the hospitalityeducators.com website, which is an ongoing process with many learning curves, we have had to master new skills continually. The technical learning curves are uncomfortable and numerous, but they are a must. We do not know what we do not know, so we ask and are willing to keep on asking in order to reach our business goals.
Mastering new skills increases the professional’s value in the workplace and the marketplace. The position of today while working in company A will be different tomorrow whether still working for Company A or a new Company B. One market may shrink or disappear while another emerges. We all need to retain the flexibility needed to adapt or change. I recommend you read Who Moved My Cheese by Spencer Johnson if you have not already.
