"I don't have time to learn something new."

How many times have you said this to yourself? Trust me, I understand, most of my days get so hectic I forget to each lunch, let alone learn something new.

But prioritizing learning in your busy schedule is key to your career growth. So when the unexpected happens and tries to throw you off your game, here are a few tips to get you back on track.

1. Define your learning goal. What’s one thing that is most important for you to learn now? Figure out what that is, and write it down as goal number one.

2. Gather your tools and resources. Make sure to get the information you need to succeed from the right people and places. You can always leverage the people in your network when you want to learn about something specific, check out a video on YouTube, LinkedIn Learning, etc., or even find a course online to help increase your knowledge.

3. Schedule the time on your calendar. When you have a client or team meeting you don’t just show up, it’s an invite on your calendar that prioritizes a specific day and time for you to attend. Treat your development just the same. Add it to your calendar in blocks of 15 or 30-minute increments so that it’s quick and manageable. Before you know it, you will have spent 1 hour for the week increasing your skills.

4. Make it fun! Who says learning can’t be fun? And the more you talk about what you want to learn with others you may even discover that a friend or peer of yours is interested in learning that same thing. So learn something new together, and share your research and experiences. You could even mix it up a little and create a learning challenge to see who masters the skill first. Whatever you do, hold each other accountable so that you can reach your learning goal as a team.

5. Apply what you’ve learned. You’ve made the commitment and invested the time so now find ways to apply what you’ve learned to get some real-world experience.
