Learning Quotes

Learning quotes can be a useful way to remind ourselves that our profession is not about training, it is about enabling learning. It's not about us, it's about the people we are working with and the people we are working for, whether or not they are colleagues or customers.

These quotes and others like them can also give us the opportunity to reflect on our own attitude and approach to work. 

A colleague who started a new job and going through his desk drawer to put things away found a small leaflet that had been left behind, it became his guiding principle from then. Action or distraction - it became his focus whether doing or learning.

Action or distraction

Learn to recognize real work. Separate it from 'busy' work which is imaginary or manufactured. Work is essentially 'decisions', 'planning', and 'originating'. Work is always what you are trying to postpone, dodge or distract yourself from. Work is the most difficult and demanding task in your day's program. Work is also specifically what you are paid to do and what it "pays you to do. It helps to ask yourself every day, "What am I paid for?" Always provided you can answer the question, set your priorities by it and stick to them.
