On Tuesday, May 12th, I started a new journey…365 days of Learning! I am going to put out a weekly summary of the things that I learned that week. All of these posts have occurred on my LinkedIn. Would love to connect with you there as well!

#365DaysOfLearning – Day 1 – May 12, 2020

I have been curious about the term of “upskilling” and what it means for our future. This 12 minute mini-documentary from PwC highlights the implications of technology change in the world, and the need for new skills. Here are a couple of quotes from the video that really stood out to me:

“Upskilling is about preparing people for a technology based future. It has both to do with enhancing the skills people have in the digital world and increasing their capacity to be good citizens and good leaders, and actually increasing our ability to understand what’s happening to ourselves and manage it effectively.” – Blair Sheppard

“If we embrace upskilling, if we take ownership for ourselves, I do think we can write the narrative for what the future looks like.” – Carol Stubbings

“Upskilling means making yourself relevant for the future. There is a focus on continual improvement.” – Tamal Bhattacharya

I recently discovered www.VisualCapitalist.com, and I have been fascinated by some of their data visualizations, especially in the trends arising from COVID-19. The one that caught my eye today was about app popularity during the pandemic. What app has been highly popular for you during this period? We have been wearing out the Amazon app!! haha

#365DaysOfLearning – Day 3 – May 14, 2020

Today on our Leadership Development Call Series, we welcomed Melissa Harrison, MA, LPC and Andrew Onimus, MBA from Minding Your Mind to talk about the very important and timely topic of “Managing Mental Health in Uncertain Times.” Mental health research has forecasted that by the end of 2020, the prevalence of mental health issues – such as emotional disorders and substance dependence – will surpass all physical diseases as the leading cause of disability in the U.S. In an average week in the U.S., five million people miss work due to stress and an estimated four million workdays are lost due to depression. All of that is before the pandemic. Thank you Melissa and Andrew for pointing us to ways we can manage our stress, recognize warning signs and where to seek out help for ourselves and others we love.

I learned about the wins exercise a few years ago from Strategic Coach, and it has been part of my daily routine since. Each evening, my husband I share our 3 wins for the day. Somedays are easy, some days are hard, but there is always something to be thankful for. We have recently added to our wins, sharing our favorite thing our 18 month old our son did that day. Try it out! I promise it will help you end your day with a grateful heart and more confidence heading into the next day!

#365DaysOfLearning – Day 5 – May 16, 2020

I have been participating in Rachel Hollis’ #RiseXLive virtual conference, and I have been enjoying it so much! Today I listened to Ed Mylett speak on self-confidence. His definition of self-confidence is the process of keeping the promises you made to yourself. So one of the ways to build self-confidence is to make simple, small promises to yourself that you can keep, and be intentional about giving yourself credit when you do it. “I did it again!” A second way that resonated with me is the ONE MORE theory. If my goal is 30 minutes of exercise, do ONE more minute. If I am willing to things that others won’t, then I am going to produce results that others don’t. Look forward to implementing these ideas!

#365DaysOfLearning – Day 6- May 17, 2020

One of my favorite podcasts to listen to is Exponential Wisdom with Peter Diamandis and Dan Sullivan. Today I listened to an episode called “Business Model Innovation”. It has been interesting to hear about all the great ideas and companies that emerged out of the Great Recession. It is also exciting to think about what might come! “Look for great problems! Look for people that are not getting served and jot them down. See if you are excited about that! The worlds biggest problems are the worlds biggest business opportunities.” – Peter Diamandis

#365DaysOfLearning – Day 7- May 18, 2020

Today I had the opportunity to hear from Tony Robbins talk about serving, and it really hit home for me. He said, “What is going to make you grow is a life of service.” Every single day, being of service.
