    Learning is incomplete without its implementation

    It is seen that sometimes people are eager to learn or know about new things or activities but when it comes to implementation, they take a backseat. This is applicable to academics, professional as well as our personal life. A lot of excitement and hype goes into training, learning a new topic or an activity and people feel highly motivated during the training period and think that after the learning this they will start practicing it. But it happens sometimes that the moment their learning period is over, and they go back to routine life the motivation they gained during learning is almost lost and they do the things in same old way as they used to before the training. It would be apt to mention some real-life examples here.

    A professional who gets training on new technology or some soft skills feels elevated and motivated in classroom environment when the whole training group is together. But moment the training gets over and people go back to their desk to work, their day to day office activities and work pressures starts building up and their motivation to implement the learning during the training gets lost or becomes a low priority.

    Similarly, in family few members take training on yoga and meditation from individuals or organization and think that once the training is over this will change their life and do wonders to their physical and mental health. But once they are back to their day to day household schedule, seriousness to practice yoga and meditation gets lost and forgotten. People do not show the will power and discipline to implement it and make use of the training.

    A student may study the subjects very well and get good marks in exams as well but when it comes to practically implement his study in day to day happenings and observations sometimes, he or she does not connect, relate or implement what they have learnt from their books.

    It is important to realize that learning new things and concepts be it through formal training or self-learning becomes valuable to us only when we implement it in our life. Training without any implementation would be like buying a desired thing and locking it in the cupboard and never using it. A lot of time, energy and sometimes money goes into learning new things and if people don't make use of it then its sheer waste of resources.

    Now why this happens that sometimes people do not implement what they learnt? It is seen that sometimes people are not completely serious to take the training and implement it, but they just take it for their satisfaction so that they can just add it to their list of qualifications. On the other hand there are some people who are really interested to take and implement it but due to busy schedule or work pressure they get bogged down and do not prioritize to implement the leanings during training.

    So the journey which starts from training ends only when it reaches its destination called implementation.

    The author has rightly pointed out that what we learn must be implemented and if not the very purpose of learning is defeated. I have seen students taking to tuition on a particular subjects and the parents do spend huge money on education and when it comes to the day of performance or writing the exam, the students get confused and fail to maintain the time and thus the answers which they know also not written. When the tuition are taken it should be a supplementary and not the main preparation activity for the exam. If the candidate relate what is taught in the class and being learned at the tuition, he could get an idea to write exam. But this kind of preparedness and implementation is lacking in many and in spite of money spent the parents blame on the school. teacher and the tuition center for failures.

    Learning some think will be useful only when we implement them in our lives. Generally, school children will read the books to understand the topics and pass in the examination. Once they passed out, they never think about what they studied. But we should understand that we go to schools and learn the subject not for just passing the examination. We should know how that concept will be useful for us in our lives and we should implement wherever it is useful.
    When we are in a job, we will be sent for training programs and we learn certain things there. But once we are back to our duty we will never think how the skill learned in the training program will come handy for us in our work front. But when we think in those lines only our skill will be useful. Otherwise, the money spent on training by the company will be a waste expenditure only. One should always think about how our learnings can be used for the betterment.

    This has been said well by the great Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar in his Thirukkural.
    'Karka kasadara karpavai karrabin nirka atharkku thaga" - Whatever you learn, learn it thoroughly. After you have learned, learn to apply what you have learned and live your life according to what you have learned.
    If we cannot adhere to what we learned, there is no use of learning. This needs no elaboration.

    I had read a message forwarded in our common group about IAS exam. The person who wrote the 4-5 page on dowry and got top marks for his essay in the UPSE exam and became an IAS officer. Now when the time for him to implement it, he never does it and maybe the person asking double dowry as per his post and status in the society. In the same way, when we hear about something new that can change us, we get excited and is full pumped-up to join the course or class as it will help us in the long run. We complete the course with full dedication but as soon the class or course gets over, we do practise it for few more days and slowly, the excitement or motivation fades and we are back to our normal routine and formula. Until we make an effort to implement it in our daily life or routine, it will be just on the paper which can be used for highlighting it on our resume or an additional certificate but lest we make use of it, be it in our personal, professional or family life, it is not worth for the pain we take to attend and learn it.

    The author has well put up the thought that learning without its use is of no use. In this context I want to say that somehow our education system is not built on the fundamental principles of skill learnings and their implementation in real life scenario. So we learn mangy things but when it comes to implementation, we restrict ourselves to the beaten path as directed or guided to us by our seniors. So, it is difficult to say as whose fault is this but if there are compulsory skill based elements and practice session included in the education then whatever we learn would be of use one day as we have seen its utility right at the time of learning it in the school or college.
    Knowledge is power.

    Absolutely correct. If we are unable to implement what we learned it is of no use. Then it becomes learning something just for the sake of learning. Another interesting thing is if we do not implement what we have learned in any training or from a book we forget a significant part of the topic after a while. There are many books, training and videos available to motivate a person. Many follow them and even tell others about those things but those things cannot motivate a few. The reason is the processes/methods described in those training are not at all implemented by those few. To get the result, we must act. If we do not act there will be no result.

    It is no meaning in learning a thing without implementation. Our spiritual Guru used to tell us while stressing the importance of meditation learned from a Guru as it is meaning less if we are practicing the teachings in our daily routine. It is similar to that by mere reading a cookery book one cannot quench his hunger. By cooking according to the book and eat only we can quench our hungry or digest the matter written in the book. Similarly, we can reach a place only after taking ticket and catching the train as mentioned in the Railway Time Table but mere reading the Time Table we cannot reach the place. So, effort should be made as we learnt,
