By three methods we may learn wisdom
First, by reflection which is noblest
Second by imitation which is easiest.
And third by experience which is the bitterest.
The internet is full of great training programs
The real challenge is deciding which one is best for you.
Here are some things to consider
Are you going to use it for your business RIGHT NOW?
Looking at your Learning Priorities what do you need NOW to learn and find a training program to fullfill that need.
Focus on your goal
Choose the program based on whether or not it will get you to your goal
It has to be something you can use today.
Ask yourself whether you have the TIME to do it?
Try to work on it a little at a time daily.
Before buying anything
look at your schedule and decide when will be your training time.
Ask yourself do you really need it?
Some tasks you can outsource, delegate to others or automate.
Most training requires some investment of time and energy and the end result may not be worth it.
Research each product you’re considering and see reviews. Take everything with a grain of salt.
Look especially for honest negative reviews.
Ask yourself does it cover everything?
Will the product cover everything you need to know?
Will it only cover part of the process and you have to purchase and learn more?
Have a plan to follow through with the training that is written out as a schedule.
You get busy, you get distracted, lose interest or find other ideas and you lose focus from finishing the training.
Decide on a end goal deadline to finish the training and then work backwards to divide up the days with some training each day to keep yourself on track.
Always learn with the end result in mind and how that learning will move your business forward.
