Expert Austin Trahern is always learning, even with a full-time schedule speaking and consulting with clients around the country. If there is one thing Austin Trahern has learned, it’s that you have to stay at the forefront of your industry and that requires real effort.
Austin Trahern always reminds his clients that the first step to ultimate success is avoiding mental fatigue.
“You are going to get tired, and you are going to have moments where you feel like you are in over your head,” explained Austin Trahern. “It’s important that when this happens that you have a game plan that involves resting and learning new material.”
Austin Trahern recommends finding a way to engage your brain to keep yourself stimulated and always learning.
Audio books and podcasts are a great way to check in with pop culture, and simultaneously learn new information about your specific field. Finding ways to stay engaged and to practice the art of learning are vital to succeeding in business and in life. They not only help you recharge, but they help you learn new skills to grow your business and brand.
As a culture, we are busier than ever before with the massive influx of information coming our way. Austin Trahern always recommends that his clients also find time to shut down the internet and breakaway from technology.
In order to move information from your short term memory to your long term memory you have to practice over and over, and taking a break from technology is a great way to reset your clock, and let your brain soak in the new information you have been learning.
A great way to do this that Austin Trahern recommends is to set a limit everyday that you spend on the internet and tied to your electronics. When you hit that limit, disconnect for the rest of the day and connect with the outdoors and the people around you.
Doing this truly allows your brain to store all of the information that you’ve been learning, and it also will decrease stress when you separate yourself from technology.
Learning doesn’t have to be a chore, and Austin Trahern recommends practicing these tips to achieve even greater heights in your business.
