but we all learn best differently?

Formal education emphasizes reading and writing from an early stage so really rarely would anyone pass through formal education without being able to do read and write.

Readers are Leaders! It’s the favorite mantra of motivational speakers ( anyone who uses words to motivate people). I can’t blame anyone, most of the information in the world still exists in written form so wouldn’t it be wise to read what is written? However, in this digital age where technology has led to the provision, multiple formats of information would written information still maintain a monopoly?

Again, so many top/successful people in the world claim to be a product of books/reading, so it only makes sense to follow their example as we all want to be successful but could the next generation produce leaders who don’t read or rather don’t read as much as we expect but of course learn.

What happens to people that naturally prefer other learning styles? Sadly formal education’s structure doesn’t help yet. However, It’s good to know that gradually technology ( YouTube, Soundcloud, Audio Books… ) would help even the gap between the number of other formats of information and verbal format of information.

Of course, because there’s more written information in the world and about the world, you probably can’t survive without reading anything for now but as long you are learning by listening, watching, doing, you’re doing fine.

Selling, watching Video tutorials, TED Talks, Interacting with new/different people, practicing your shot, fixing what is broken…the list is endless.

Listeners are Leaders, Watchers are Leaders. Doers are Leaders. Learners are leaders.

Learners are leaders also sounds true, cool and more inclusive.

  • This write up stemmed from a discussion with someone who preferred learning in a different way but felt uncomfortable because the general opinion was Readers are Leaders.
  • I love reading, I read a lot but I feel it might just be overrated. Learning never will!

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac

    1. Hello Jan, Wow do we follow each other on twitter? if yes or not pls say Hi via Dm if that’s a preferred medium of communication for you.
      Oh great, so I’ve looked at your site extensively and I like the layout, the theme (Hestia) you used is beautiful, good use of white space.
      About your website, patience is pretty much the first advice I would give because you recently started and it would take some time and consistency to have the kind of following you desire, I wouldn’t advise paid promotion ( maybe once in a while you can experiment with some little money) for now since it’s a side thing, you’d want to grow organically first.
      Most people that start blogs stop after a while so I’d suggest focusing on sustaining consistency i.e getting to the point where you can’t do without writing or sharing stuff.
      Social media marketing would definitely help, with time you would be able to ride on existing trends and get to know what and how people want to learn.
      I see you have a YouTube channel connected so I suppose you have plans for vlogging in the nearest future.

      Oh sorry, I would fix a newsletter right about now. Thank you helpful feedback. Pls say Hi on twitter or any other preferred social media platform

      Yes, We can work on the link thingy for SEO reason.
