The traditional thought suggests that we should learn from our life experiences. That certainly makes a lot of sense to me. In our life journey we all make mistakes now and then. If we don't allow those mistakes to be learning experiences then we are missing out.
However, learning and living goes both ways. When we learn something new we should try to apply it to our own lives when it is applicable to what we are doing. Many marketing lessons are learned from experience, but there are also many resources for learning the marketing tricks others have learned.
Find good books or blogs on the subject of marketing and promotion to see what the experts have to say on that matter. Start applying what you learn to your daily life. Ask questions about the things you don't understand. Work with others in their promotions to see what you can use for yourself later.
Learning and then living while using what you've learned will help you attain your goals more efficiently. If others have already blazed trails that makes your journey easier then use those trails.
Some Poetry about Life's Lessons
Here's a bit of A to Z Challenge history for you. When I put out my Challenge to bloggers in 2010 to blog with me from A to Z, the first person to take the challenge was poetry blogger Yvonne Lewis who blogs at Welcome to My World of Verse. She's been a dear friend ever since.
She's back again for this year's Challenge so I hope you'll visit her and while you're there join as one of her followers. She's had some blog problems but hopefully this new one is here to say. She's got some wonderful A to Z entries again this year.
And just in time for April Yvonne Lewis has released her third volume of poetry. Distribution in the U.S. is being worked on. I'm particularly stoked about this release because I'm on the cover! That's me with Yvonne at the bottom of the cover. Plus I've written a few words about Yvonne in the book's Introduction. Wow, it's so cool to be sharing the stage with this poet whom I've admired for so long. Go Yvonne!
Do you learn well from the mistakes you make in your life? Have you taken any classes in marketing? Do you know about Yvonne Lewis?
