Are you running out of topics to talk about in your workplace huddles?
That will never happen to you if you cultivate the RTTS Habit:
- Read something
- Trigger new thoughts (question what you just read)
- Talk Story about it (with someone, or with your team)
We talked about this last when I shared some web links with you, yet for that ‘sequential and consequential learning’ we speak of with ‘Ike loa you just can’t beat a great book, I think”
“”someone who calls themselves a manager of people must be a learner, and they must dedicate themselves to non-stop, sequential and consequential learning.
Sequential in that it builds upon previous lessons learned, and it takes you through a process where you question instruction and do not always accept what you are taught at face value; you polish it like a gem in your mind until something about it rings true for you.
Consequential in that it is worthwhile stuff; it makes a difference for you, and you aren’t simply collecting lessons on some scorecard. There’s some personal take-away in it for you. Now that you know it, you’re going to use it.”
—‘Ike loa; to seek knowledge and wisdom.

A Love Affair with Books 2009
So choose a good book, and allow your reading to trigger a few new ideas for you.
We will be wrapping up A Love Affair with Books this week on Joyful Jubilant Learning and you will find a wealth of recommendations waiting for you there. We have had 35 books reviewed over the 35 days by 35 different reviewers, all writers who are lifelong learners and eager to share some conversation about their book of choice – with YOU. If nothing else, leave a short comment for them which simply says mahalo – thank you for writing this up for us – let them know when and if their words do reach you.
Book 36 is being reviewed today and book 37 tomorrow: Which of these 37 will be the learning and talk story goodness of your RTTS Habit of sequential and consequential learning?
