How much priority do you put on your learning?

It’s been a very busy year for us at Limestone Learning Solutions – never a bad thing when you’re a consultant. But being busy can have drawbacks too. There never seems to be enough time to focus on personal development and looking back over my calendar this year, I realize that I’ve fallen into that trap. I post a list on our Limestone blog of free webinars offered on line each month and sign up for ones that interest me. I have best intentions but something work related always seems to pop up at the last minute and I end up cancelling. The same goes with industry-related reading, blog posts and tweets. I run across interesting ones and file them away for a “rainy day” reading but it rarely happens. A good example of this…I was given a really interesting book two weeks ago from a colleague of mine and I’m still on page 16!

Personal learning should always be a priority. So with some rearranging of my schedule and putting selected webinars and interesting reads on my “A” list of things to do, I’m committed to making it happen more consistently.

Have you run into the same challenge? If so and you’ve found a workable solution, I’d love to hear about it. I’ll be posting the free November webinar list in the next couple of days so check it out. I hope to “see” you online!
