Habit #6 – Pursue One Learning Goal a Month


Continuing my march through the Happiness Habits, I move on to the next: pursuing one learning goal every month, related to your job. There is so much to learn in the world. The true value of knowledge, however, is in its application. Knowledge, without action, is like a boat without water to sail in. You need to apply that knowledge somehow. The Happiness Habit of pursuing one learning goal every month, studying one topic related to your job, guarantees that you will create at least twelve Happiness Activities a year.

But how does learning something new about your industry or job translate into happiness? While the activity itself may not bring you instant happiness, the knowledge gained and then applied will bring you lasting happiness. You will begin to see more opportunities at work that will help you do a better job for your boss, colleagues, customers or clients. The real reward is in the benefits that accrue from pursuing this Happiness Habit. And if you continue to apply what you’ve learned, the knowledge will stay with you forever and continue to reward you with happiness. There is long-term happiness in learning.
