Old Dogs Can Still Learn New Tricks

We all need time away from the same old activities we do day-in and day-out. Destination U is a 7-week Staycation designed to rediscover yourself and build better business habits when you’ve returned! If you’re feeling tired, burnt out, or unsupported, we hope you’ll find some encouragement over this journey that you can do this and your business is worth fighting for.

Now It’s Time Achieve Your Goals


You can do this by getting trained and better at your job. It’s no secret that all employees, managers, and bosses could improve at their daily work. No matter how experienced you are, there is at least one area where you could use some training. Studio490’s policy is that we’re always trying to improve 1% at a time. It sets smaller, tangible goals for us to gradually become better and offer superior services. Here are some tips on learning new skills.

Stay Committed To The Training

One of the biggest mistakes people make when it comes to getting trained in new ways is that they aren’t fully committed, mostly because of time constraints at their company. Commit to setting aside 30 minutes to an hour once a week to solely be dedicated to your weekly training in this single subject. Most people will decide on the area of their training, do a lot in one week, and then realize they can’t afford to spend that much time on training and abandon it. This is not a marathon; it’s a gradual improvement.

Pick The Right Resources

There are many wonderful places for you to learn new tricks and trades for your company. Here’s a quick list of places that we personally recommend at Studio490

All of these different sites contain courses, videos, and talks on business topics, entrepreneurship, growth, and a lot more. Find which company suits your taste and get training.

Take Notes

Your brain can handle a lot of information, but don’t make the mistake everyone tells themselves in school classes, church services, and business trainings. You won’t remember it. You will need to write down the items that pique your interest and are most helpful. Better yet, when you’re trained in this way and have notes, you can refer to them later on without having to be retrained. You could even share this with your employees.

We hope you’ll take the right steps this week to learn a new skill and find ways to achieve your  S.M.A.R.T goals.
