Tip 18: Concentrate on what is relevant
'The end of the journey isn’t knowing more, it’s doing more'. Julie Dirksen
It is amazing how many hours I already spent on learning things that I never came to use. This is because I am an intrinsically motivated learner - someone who loves learning for the sake of learning.
Was it worth the time? Yes, in my case, because it made me feel good. In a world, though, in which knowledge is outdated in no time, it makes more sense to learn only what is immediately relevant to the task at hand (unless you are qualifying for a new job).
Start to learn only those functions of a new tool which you need instead of taking a full course & forgetting 80% within 24 hours. Youtube & LinkedIn Learning with their short video tutorials are great sources for just-in-time learning.
How can you become better at concentrating on what is relevant?
