Habit of Mind 16: Learning Continuously

” Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young. “

-Henry Ford

Intermittently revisit old ideas, writing and projects to identify areas for development, improvement or revision. This is especially natural in digital domains, where content is more fluid – updated, shared, hyperlinked, curated, reformatted into more or less visual terms, then shared again.

Cross training – this is where MEB feels that Continuous Learning is essential. It allows a team to improve and learn by better understanding the world, team and different departments around them. Engagement here is especially important when effective production relies on the efficiency of each interlinked department.

Example, our team works at a metal fabrication company right now – this is so exciting because cross training allows them to work in departments that differ from their usual workplace and understanding how common understanding increases everyone’s effectiveness.

The metal must be sandblasted, cut by lasers, welded into place, washed and painted-  then dried and packaged for shipping. When the welder understands the work of the sandblaster and paint – the employee can better understand what makes his team effective and therefore focus on the importance of his role and details in his work.

This is the habit that fully supports this concept – internalize the ever learning path of life!
