How you can learn every single day

How you can learn every single day

David D’Souza, Head of Engagement and London for CIPD, recently wrote about his experience in indulging his curiosity in the world of learning every day. He discusses how he has developed some habits in learning that are completely out of the classroom, and things that he fits around his day to day commitments.

His discusses how he uses tech:

Google – “Learning how to search properly will be your curiosity’s best friend.”

Twitter – “You don’t have to post on twitter to follow interesting content”

Forums/Communities – “there are a raft of places that I pop in less frequently when I want a shot of brain food.”

He discusses more traditional approaches:

Talk to different people and be curious – “if you can think of conversations as opportunities to grow your own thinking and knowledge, then every different perspective you come across becomes an opportunity to learn.”

Read the paper – “I love Flipboard, but I still think settling down with a paper is both relaxing and enriching in a different way.”

Watch TV/films – “I talk a lot about films to illustrate ideas to people as they have a resonance with people that makes points memorable.”


Do you learn every day? Maybe you do without even realising. All of the above methods are great for learning, and there are so many others too, to read all David’s methods of learning click here for the full blog.


Let me know how you learn every day. #LOVECPD

  • Great question Lucy.

    Twitter is definitely a go to place for me every single day. I browse through a list of people that are interested in HR and L&D usually at the start of every day, often before work, to get a general feeling of what people are talking about. Usually I'll find an article, a discussion, a video or something to have a read through or a watch of. Sometimes it's stuff that gets me thinking, sometimes it's just stuff to browse. Either way, it's ten minutes worth spending.
