When it comes to learning and developing the best thing you can do is to be specific. The key is to channel your learning to a few major areas. Doing this maximizes a person’s strengths, development, and potential. This is essential because it’s too hard to focus on growing and learning in every area. This is why we should be specific in what we learn. Earl Nightingale said,
“If you spend one hour a day on any given subject for five years, then at the end of that five years you will become an expert on that subject.”
If you desire to be an expert in any given area then it will require time and being specific in your development. But the best areas, where you will see the most results in are areas of your strengths and talents. This is because we will learn and develop the most in those areas. So if you desire to be an expert in your chosen field then be specific in your practice and learning.
Question: How specific are you with your learning?
