Continued Learning And Learning To Love It


One thing I’ve realized by being a business owner is that you got to love learning (or at least like it).

Think about some of the first deals you ever made. More than likely, they weren’t that great. Buy hey, hind sight is twenty-twenty. You now know that because you’ve learned a lot since then. You feel more confident in your decisions because if you are like me, you’ve made every mistake that can be made in your business or at least it seems like it. So it’s pretty safe to say that you’re now enjoying that education even though you paid for it by blood, sweat, and tears.

This is something that took me some time to learn but now I apply to all aspects of my life.

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” – Thomas A. Edison

Again, this is another way to look at any setbacks that we may come in contact with. It’s not a game over situation, it just requires a new way to attack the issue. But being able to do that means that you have to learn from the experience which means you better learn to get enjoyment out of it. Maybe not at first, but in retrospect. As a web developer and business owner, I’ve misquoted projects in the past because of a series of small mistakes: not scoping out the project well enough, not understanding how to price correctly, not understanding the time frame correctly, etc.

One personal thing about me is that I’m into martial arts. Kung fu to be exact. The reason why I bring that up is that I remember one time while training with my instructor, out of some frustration with myself, I mumbled that I could not stop his palm strike that would just hit me right in the chest and push me back. His response on how to stop it? Get hit with it one-thousand times. The number is arbitrary but the lesson is there is no better incentive than being uncomfortable.

“I challenge you to be uncomfortable.” – Sifu Andrew Knapp

This is another thing that I was told at a time when I was reluctant on getting outside of my comfort zone. In my business I try not to be too complacent. If I am, I more than likely am not tweaking my techniques. There is no such thing as perfection, so that means there is always room for improvement. That being said, it’s super important to celebrate the victories no matter how small.

So next time you feel that it’s a drag to learn a new process, or skill, or whatever it is that comes at you, just take some perspective and comfort in knowing that you are making yourself stronger, better, more efficient. Never stop learning and never stop loving it.
