Be honest: even though you know the value of learning new things you’ve been waiting for the right time.
You’re a solopreneur, which means you’re doing it all and there are never enough hours in any given day. It’s rare you have time to spare, so learning will just have to wait.
But here’s the thing: In order to grow your business, you have to put effort into growing yourself (which is ultimately your most valuable business asset).
So, how do you fit learning into your already jam-packed day as a solopreneur?
Start Here: Know What You Need
For starters, it’s best to avoid information overload. We all know how much of a rabbit hole Google can turn into. When you set out on a mission to learn something new, make sure it’s relevant for your business and can be put to good use immediately.
Once you’ve gotten clear on what you want to learn, it’s easier to sort out the ‘when.’
How To Fit Learning In Without Stress
Getting into the habit of weaving learning into your day to day is the key to adding more to your knowledge bank, but you won’t be able to enjoy it if it’s just another thing that stresses you out.
Focus on this: When you make learning part of your daily routine, it means you don’t have to find an extended period of time to sit down and study — which means every day will the be right time to learn, and it’ll be hard to find an excuse not to.
