Focus Your Study – Learn Everything You Need to Know


Tom Corley boats - crop

Growth in knowledge is critical for success. It was a very common Rich Habit of the self-made millionaires in my Rich Habits Study.

But, it’s impossible to know everything.

Therefore, you must focus your study on specific areas that will create the greatest return for the time you invest in your learning.

Let’s touch on these key areas:

  1. Learn everything about your job and the industry you are in.
  2. Learn everything about the dream you are pursuing.
  3. Learn everything about the people who can help open doors for you – the influencers.
  4. Learn everything about significant current events. They might come up in conversation with someone who may be a future door-opener (influencer).
  5. Every day, learn at least one new fact related to what you do. Document those new facts. I use a Fact Binder for this.
  6. Every day, learn at least one new word. Document your new words. Use them in conversation that very first day you learn the new word. Write down your new words. I use a Vocabulary Binder for this. It’s broken us into various sections: Words to Use in Writing, Words to Use in Speaking, Words Specific to My Industry/Profession. The words we use create perceptions. Being good with words makes you sound articulate and more intelligent. You want others to see you as intelligent.
  7. Learn something outside your comfort zone; something that will challenge your thinking and force you to re-evaluate your beliefs. The wrong beliefs will hold you back in life.

Process learning every day. Spend at least 30 minutes a day devoted to learning. Learning causes you to grow. Growth is a prerequisite for success in life.
