Be Like Mike

June 20, 2012

I’m curious. I want to know stuff. Well, stuff besides Kim Kardashian’s every thought. I’m always reading, and mostly here. No, not my own blog. The net, although I am guilty of trolling my own space. At my age, going back even a few months is like reading someone else’s blog… Plus, I find the errors I missed the first time I hit “Publish.” It helps me to improve. To learn. The way I look at it, the more I know builds a broader and deeper context for improving this spinning rock ride. Learning evolves your perspective, so you can see things differently, and maybe figure out how to improve them. It’s no different using software or a system. The more you learn about it, the more opportunities for improvement suddenly bubble out of the goo. Recently I researched for and found a partial solution to the forgetting things thing. A simple Evernote widget gives me one touch recording capability on my Android phone. Now if I could just waterproof it for those deep thoughts found and lost in the shower…

My point is: never stop learning. At this point in the program, I’d usually transition to a discussion of the many learning opportunities for Kronos products, including links to them. I’m not going to do that. If you’re a Kronos customer and you want to broaden and deepen your understanding of the products you invested in so you can find opportunities for improving workforce management in your organization, you’ll find the resources. I was simply inspired by this cool story in Chief Learning Officer about Dan Pontefract, senior director of learning and collaboration at Canadian telecommunications firm Telus, and I hope even a little, you’re inspired to never stop learning.

And no, not that Mike.
