When it comes to knowledge and understanding there are three types of people:
-The 3% that know
-The 2% that know they don’t know
-The 95% that don’t know they don’t know
Do you know which group you fall into?
When educating the groups that don’t know it’s easier to reach the 2% as they know that know they don’t know. This is because they are willing to learn and do the work in order to build their knowledge and understanding. Whereas 95% are harder to reach in terms of sharing information as they don’t know that they are missing out on any.
If you don’t know which group you fall into there’s no need to worry, as we can help you to get in the know!
Below are some tips and strategies for the best ways to acquire new knowledge and information, in order to keep up with new innovations and current conversations. These points aren’t just limited to the Technology and Media industries, they can be tailored to any industry or subject you wish to know more about. There are many ways to stay in the know, we’ll run through with you some of the simplest and least time-consuming.
Take advantage of the free resources around you, such as social media.
Who do you follow and subscribe to? Curating your social media so you follow and engage with industry professionals and publications you can follow is a great first step. As you can digest bitesize pieces of information on the go, and further your knowledge around the certain subject matter you find useful and interesting.
Now that the world is opening up again so are in-person events ( online attendance has been incorporated into a lot of event programming if that is what’s more convenient) going to talks and having conversations with like-minded people opens you up to other perspectives for one as well as new information. That is why it’s important who you surround yourself with, especially when you’re trying to grow, learn and develop.
Following the recommendations above is great, but keep reading, researching and listening to help consolidate all the new information you’ve been absorbing. Another great resource is podcasts. Mixing up the way you consume information helps you to stay engaged. Immerse yourself in your subject and industry and you’ll be an expert in no time!
