If something sparks my interest, I immediately want to learn more about it. Kinda like Curious George – the cute little monkey that usually got into trouble, but always had fun and learned something valuable along the way.
Beyond filling me up and satisfying my curiosity, learning new things keeps my creative juices flowing.
In an interview the host said to me, “You always have a new blog or a recipe, or some type of online health program. And, now you have a new book coming out. How do you consistently keep generating new content?” It’s simple… I keep learning.
Many years ago I read a fantastic book, Coach Yourself to Success by Talane Miedaner. She said, “As a rule of thumb, it’s a good idea to invest 5 to 10% of your income in further training. Take the time to master your field and then keep on learning.”
It was smart advice. I’m always taking new classes to keep me, and my content, fresh and exciting. And, I encourage the students in my Master Coaching in Action Program to do the same. Keep on learning!
Learning new content always helps generate new ideas that I can share with my audience.
Recently, I took a weekend course in Energy Healing, and finished a three-year course in Traditional Herbalism, to continue developing my own skills in the field of natural healing.
And, of course I shared that content with my audience and my clients.
There’s a great quote by Albert Einstein, “Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.”
He was a pretty smart guy… I think I’ll keep following his lead keep on learning new things.
