Most workers seem to figure out how to do their job. Some have been in similar positions, while others “learn by doing.” One way or another, they get into “the swing of it.” There may be rough spots, but eventually it smooths out quite well.
While that’s a good feeling, it can also be a problem. We have what’s needed to do the job, but mentally we stop learning. We do our work without much thought; we perform as if we’re driving a car. A job becomes second nature.
The challenge today is to learn from what we do every day. Simply put, it’s about improving the job, making it more efficient, creative, productive, and valuable, both for ourselves and the company.
Those who improve the most are those who learn from what they do every day.
