Two Minute Drill:

If You’re Not Learning, You’re Not Living


What’s up Kaizenovators, Happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is, “If you’re not learning, you’re not living.” I was having a conversation last week about a life experience, and somebody said, “I’ve learned a lot from that,” I replied, somewhat randomly, “If you’re not learning, you’re not living.” 

The Three Pillars of Learning


I started to think about how we learn and the impact that it has. There are three categories of how we learn. 

One is passive learning. We listen to an audiobook, watch a video, or read. Important, but passive learning without engagement may not lead to the deep understanding we hope it would. 

The second type of learning is self-awareness. This involves recognizing how we can change our lives for the better, doing something different, or trying something new to achieve a new result. 

This can be a very effective way of learning—learning about ourselves and our own behavior patterns—but it requires a tremendous amount of discipline to execute. At least, that’s what the behavioral scientists say. 

Then the third type of learning is community learning. Learning in a group with peers, among others. 

This tends to have the greatest impact on learning, according to the evidence. We learn the most because there’s a high level of engagement, and also because we’re learning around others, which significantly increases motivation and inspiration. 

When it comes to learning, if you’re not learning, you’re not living, and you can use all three of these ways to improve your life. 

You can certainly do passive learning. I do a ton of it: watching videos, reading books, listening to audiobooks—all that good stuff. Self-learning, learning about myself, is a constant process in my own brain. It’s very important and does require a lot of discipline. And lastly, I’m very fortunate; I go to lots of events where I get to be with my peers. I learn from others, engage with others, and understand how to improve my professional, personal, and financial life. 

That’s it, guys. If you’re not learning, you’re not living. 

That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. Hope you guys have a great week, and I’ll talk to you all next week.
