The importance of continuous learning

It can be hugely beneficial to have a boss who encourages continuous learning, especially when moving into a new role in a different field. I’ve iterated on a learning system in the past two years that basically involves using Evernote to capture information from a number of sources: online articles; ebooks; podcasts; audiobooks; magazines and newspapers. In the organisations I’ve worked in, I haven’t seen a willingness to facilitate continuous learning across teams through the adoption of new tools such as Evernote, which seems something of a missed opportunity.
