Most of us look at learning as a thing we need to do to level up as if we were playing a video game. We run down the list of upgrade tasks to either sign off those we are training or to get signed off of ourselves. The system even encourages this by setting time limits on how long it takes to become a 5- or 7- level. There is never a gauge of “quality of training”. In the instructor world, we champion the phrase: “Objective taught not objective complete.” One suggests a checklist and the other suggests the transfer of knowledge. Strive to use what you learn and master it.
