Jan 4, 2021

Welcome to 2021! If you’re like me, you’ve probably heaved a sigh of relief the moment the calendar hit January 1. As we leave 2020 behind us, it’s important that we take its lessons with us. Learning, after all, is part of growth - and it’s also the second step in the P.L.A.N. Blue Print. After we designed our ‘In a Perfect World’ scenario and planned for the trip towards it, it’s time to equip ourselves with the necessary skills and knowledge to help us realize our dreams: because when we dream big, it’s our responsibility to arrive prepared.

In this episode, I highlight the role of learning in your journey towards your ‘In a Perfect World’ scenario. I explain why you don’t need to master a skill right away and underscore the importance of letting yourself be a beginner. I share some experiences - and bad memories - with sports and how I strove to be better at cornhole despite some embarrassing moments with it. I also share some tips and platforms to help people with different learning styles and reveal the two defining factors of self-education.
