SASSI LLC – 6 steps of Self-directed learning

  1. Identify what you want to learn
    Visualize what you want to achieve by being very clear about what you want to learn.
  2. Pinpoint the problem you want to solve
    Sometimes, your motivation may be to solve a problem instead of learning a new skill. In this case, learning will still happen, but solving the problem is your focus.
  3. Set a goal for your learning process
    How will you measure your achievements? Charting your progress will give you motivation along the way.
  4. Create something from what you will have learned. This could be a blog, a new product or a service. With this creation, you integrate what you’ve learned.
  5. Manage your time
    Prioritize your self-directed learning. When will this happen?
  6. Network with like-minded learners
    Connecting with a learning community in person or online inspires you to keep doing what you love doing Example: volunteer!
