Some people are of the opinion that at some point, the training that an individual receives is going to simply stop occurring. While this is a pleasant dream to maintain, it is not a very accurate representation of the reality of what a career entails. If your career is active, you have got to be in training all of the time, so that you can stay at the very top of your game and be a solid competitor. Keep in mind that all of the successful people against whom you are competing every day are all in a constant state of training themselves and being trained by their organizations.
In order to train yourself, you have got to have clearly defined objectives which you want to meet, as well as clear methods by which you can go from not meeting those objectives to doing so. For instance, if you want to make more sales, how many more to do you want to make, and in what time frame? If you want to make an additional 50 sales per month, what do you want to grow as far as your relevant skills? The better you can answer all of these questions, the more effectively you are going to be able to train yourself to be a better worker.
Another way that you should be getting training all of the time is from your employer. Any employer who is worth the effort that you give them every day is going to want to make sure that you are operating at the pinnacle of your personal ability on as consistent a basis as can be expected out of anybody. If they assume that you have had “enough” training, you might want to put in your two weeks notice immediately, because the place is going to stagnate and crumble soon enough. A hungry organization trains employees all the time.
