#365DaysOfLearning – Week 4

by | Jun 9, 2020 | #365DaysofLearning, Blog

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 – Days 20-22, May 31 – June 2, 2020

I haven’t posted for the last couple of days, quite frankly, because I didn’t know what to say, and just didn’t feel that it was helpful or additive given the seriousness of the much larger conversation being held around our country. But we are all on a learning journey, and using this time to seek information, to truly learn about injustice and ways we can do better is a critical step to healing and moving forward with love and real change. So that is how I have been learning lately.

One of the reasons that the 365 Days of Learning challenge sparked my interest was not just to keep myself accountable to learning everyday, but it resonated with my true self of “Advocate for Potential”. I hope that occasionally something that I share is interesting, helpful and relevant to you, and it helps you grow that day too! Did you learn something today that you think would be helpful to another person…share it! When we bring others along with us on the journey, everyone grows.

Really enjoyed this 3 minute excerpt of a TED talk from Darria Long Gillespie on ways we can get our stress under control. “Expect and Design for Crazy” was impactful for me as I need to automate more and reduce the number of decisions I am making each day!

The personal finance space is an area that I have a lot to learn in, even as a financially minded CPA. When I read some of these stats shared by Visual Capitalist, it confirmed my hunch that I am not alone. What has been your favorite website, app or tool to help you grow in your personal finance journey?

What 3 domains of competence – IQ, Technical Skills and EQ, are the most importance for success and great leadership? In preparation for a session I am attending on Emotional Intelligence, Bill Benjamin with Institute for Health and Human Potential shared the results of the 40 year Harvard Business School study seeking to answer this question, which I found very interesting!

“What I learned from the study was being a great leader was not about being the smartest guy in the room, having all the right ideas. It was about something else. It was about how I connect, how I handle pressure, how I engage and motivate people. And it is not just true at work, is it? Managing your emotions is critical to being effective in your personal life with your family.” – Bill Benjamin


That’s all for this week!  Follow me on LinkedIn if you would like to learn with me daily, or subscribe below for a weekly digest of these learnings on the blog!
