Learning Styles – Yours

Hello, my friends and future millionaires.

Welcome to The Money Wheel. 

My name is Kris Hutchinson, and we’ve got a special treat because Andrea is back with us today to share with us about some student learning styles, Andrea, how are you?

I am wonderful! it’s a great day in the Northwoods. 

As you guys know, or don’t know if this is your first time meeting me, nice to meet you.

I have been a coach and a trainer for a very, very long time and before I was a coach & trainer, I was a student.

And to this day, I’m still a student and I wanted to come to you guys because since we are all learning, we are all entrepreneurs and we’re all building something bigger to serve humanity, to serve the world I came here today to help you identify what kind of student you are and how I identify your personal student style learning style, it’s going to improve immediately improve your actionable results.

Now, what did I just say? I just said, we’re all learning and we’re all students. 

How do you learn? Well, there’s two very different types of students out there and I come across it all the time where you’re probably going to identify with one more than the other. 

Type One is very present and engaged; They listen, they learn, they take the world’s best notes.

They hang on your every word and listen to everything you say because they don’t want to miss a thing.

They barely blink at a seminar and they don’t get up to go to the bathroom because they don’t want to miss anything important.

Also, before taking any action, these are the people that want to experience the full course, the full book, or the full everything.

These are the people, for example, that need to see the full map when driving from Wisconsin to Albuquerque because they want to know every turn, every step of the way before they go anywhere because they don’t want to miss anything… They want the full picture.

Type One people are my “Wise Owls” and must see the full map prior to driving. 

Then you have the Type Two learning style where people watch a session, read a chapter here and a nugget there, but then act immediately.

They hear step one and move forward immediately without listening to the next step. 

They’re not going to ask you about the next stage because they are in the “now” moment and they’re not afraid to take action and make a mistake.

To continue our driving analogy, these are the people that are going to start driving and ask questions once they are in traffic.

They only want to know the next turn and and then after that next turn, they want to know the next turn.

They’re not necessarily looking at the long game, but only looking at the immediate and from that immediate, they’ve going to pivot and learn from those steps that they take.

These are my “Fast Puppies”. 

I want you to think, who are you … A Wise Owl or a Fast Puppy?

Are you an immediate action taker or are you a planner and a processor? 

They’re both very important so, after identifying your learning style, explore what advantages do you see in the other one?

What traits do you see in that other learning style that you could use more of? 

I’m bringing that up for a reason because you, as a student of life, as we all are, need to be both precise and active, because this is a fast world.

If you sit on your hands for too long to see the full course, you might miss something or an opportunity might just pass you by.

But if you act too fast without thinking, you’re likely to walk into oncoming traffic, you need to be both engaged and active, precise, and deliberate.

This is why I wanted to ask you what kind of student you are, because when you know what kind of student you are, it helps you realize what you need more of because we’re all always learning.

And if we’re not learning, there’s a chance that something valuable might be passing you by because, regardless of the industry we’re in or what kind of entrepreneur you are, there’s always new people coming up, new trends, and new feedback on what’s happening.

Whether you are a Fast Puppy or a Wise Owl, pay attention to the long-term trends because if you don’t learn from the past, you’re going to repeat it.

And this brings me down to something I tell all of my students, “intentional acts of redundancy, breed the mastery of skill.”

Which means you are going to keep repeating your actions to master that skill. 

When improvements come, be the first to implement them because you’ve already mastered every other step along the way, keep repeating what you’re doing so you are the absolute master in your space.

Whatever space that is, know that immediate action does dictate immediate rewards, either from direct successes, profits, revenues, leads students, or from lessons that you’re going to learn from any mistakes or hiccups that might happen.

Be ready to put intentional acts of repetitive motions behind the skills & traits you need improvement in so you can build to success.

By identifying your learning style you can be engaged in life, in business and in success so that when opportunity comes, you’re going to be the first one to see it and the wise one to act upon it because you already have that level of due diligence present in your brain.

Think about that for the next couple of days and identify who you are and what you need to improve upon to take that step up from this very moment to success.

What do you think about that, Kris? 

I think that’s amazing and that’s definitely something that everybody needs to think about.

One of the reasons that Don and I worked so well as a partnership is because we both have different traits which is exactly what you’re talking about.

In our daily work, I tend to focus more on the immediate action, whereas Don is planning ahead and thinking about where we need to go.

And it does work well because it frees me up from having to split my focus, but at the same time, it’s a good check and balance between the two of us regarding what we need to accomplish.

So I absolutely agree with you and I thank you for bringing up that it’s really important for our students to know.

Absolutely my honor.

Well, that’s all we got for today, so we’ll see you next time on The Money Wheel.
