Learning is incomplete without its implementationIt 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.
