How to turn knowledge into capital for career development?
When it comes to learning ability, many people are used to thinking that learning workplace skills, absorbing knowledge in a professional field and so on, but in fact this is a deep misunderstanding.According to Lao Wang’s observation of the workplace, Lao Wang found that there was such a phenomenon in the workplace: some people obviously very hard to learn professional knowledge, learning workplace skills, but the development is still mediocre.When this happens, people often attribute it to luck or other obstacles, generating all kinds of complaints.But Wang wants to say: career development is not as simple as answering a questionnaire when you go to school.What you have learned has not been effectively applied in the workplace. In essence, you have only completed the storage of knowledge rather than the transformation of its value.Everyone knows that “knowledge is power”, but not everyone knows how knowledge can be turned into power, which is why many people in the workplace get confused.So, how to turn knowledge into their own career capital through continuous learning?Wang’s advice: 1. Get high-quality sources of knowledge.In this era of information explosion, as soon as you turn on your mobile phone or computer, all kinds of information is flooding into your world from all directions, taking away your time.How you choose information, and what information you choose to absorb, determines the quality of knowledge you acquire.Therefore, when acquiring knowledge, it is necessary to have a clear goal and screen the information.This goal should be mainly in your professional field, as precise as possible.For example, say you are a self-driving technician and plan to make that your career path.Therefore, you should focus on autonomous driving technology as your primary goal in the process of acquiring knowledge and gradually expand the scope.When you are in management, you need to absorb as much management knowledge as possible.For information acquisition and screening, Lao Wang mainly recommends the following three ways: 1) Reading professional books and learning professional courses.Although the present is a booming since the media fragmentation reading age, but the fragmentation of reading it is difficult to establish a systematic knowledge system, therefore, if people want to learn the knowledge in a particular field, workplace must read professional books, or learn professional courses, such as the course to another job search online system, you can also get the ability of increase quickly.2) Absorb good cases and failed cases and learn the underlying logic.In the workplace, absorbing excellent cases and learning the underlying logic behind them can also enable us to acquire high-value knowledge.These cases can be the case of the company or the industry.We should not only learn its bright spot, but also carefully analyze its motivation, method, operation mode and so on.3) Focus on leading professional sites and industry leaders.Reading is not suitable for any situation, fragmented reading in fragmented time, which is the advantage of the Internet.We can complement our system by focusing on leading professional sites or on industry leaders.Generally speaking, they keep an eye on the changes in the industry and have a degree of understanding of the industry.But it is worth noting that in the process of reading, we must have our own thinking, in order to truly absorb the knowledge.2. Sort out and classify the knowledge into their own “programs”.The so-called knowledge storage is to put appropriate and correct information in the right place, so that we can find the corresponding knowledge point when we need it.Remember that knowledge is simply finished storage, sorting it out, through thinking into their own knowledge system, knowledge can be effectively used and realize value.Knowledge solves problems and ultimately generates value.Then in the process of knowledge sorting and categorization, we should make clear what problems can be solved by the knowledge we have obtained.For example, we read an article and think it was well written.What you need to do immediately is to analyze what is good about the article. Is it the good opening, the logical layout, or the good writing?So in their own creation of this kind of article, can be used for reference, make their own article write more wonderful.In fact, this process is to determine the application direction of knowledge through thinking and sorting, and make clear which part of the knowledge will play a role in the future.3. Forcing output makes knowledge complete iterations and transitions.Output is the key point of transforming knowledge into value.Everyone in the process of doing things, will be used to the past experience as a guide to implement.It is precisely because of this inertia that many people, even though they store a lot of knowledge, fail to realize its true value.Therefore, we need to get into the habit of forcing output.In the process of carrying out a certain work, in addition to the ways and methods they are accustomed to, they should make full use of their learned knowledge or methodology to make a second plan for themselves, compare the two methods and choose a better plan.In this process of continuous verification, the old invalid knowledge will be eliminated, and constantly create their own efficient working mode.To professionals, everyone is just like a “factory”, purchasing knowledge, processing, and exporting value to achieve benefits.So, in the competitive environment, we should start from the source and do a good job in the input, processing, transformation, packaging and output of knowledge, so as to let our “factory” output high-value “products”, to obtain higher benefits and achieve the efficient development of the workplace.
