  • There's nothing to explain, because it's not even remotely valid English – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Sep 12 '17 at 17:55
  • @FumbleFingers I don't know if it's not remotely valid English... – dantiston Sep 12 '17 at 17:57
  • The possessive case is "your" what the apostrophe s referring to ;sorry I have a lack of knowledge next to ignorance in the use of it – user61355 Sep 12 '17 at 17:58
  • @dantiston: I haven't given the example sentence a great deal of thought even after glancing at it again now, but I can honestly say I currently have no real idea what the sentence is supposed to mean. – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Sep 12 '17 at 18:23
  • What is the source of your example? – user3169 Sep 12 '17 at 20:11

This looks like a case of someone using "'s" incorrectly. Sometimes people accidentally use "'s" when they actually mean to just use the plural. However, in this case, even a plural is a little bit awkward. The sentence should probably be like this:

You'll figure things out along the way and your plan will need to change to adapt to your learning consistently

Though your plan will need to change to adapt to your learnings consistently is also grammatical, just a little less common.

I would probably write (as a stylistic thing):

You'll figure out things along the way. Your plan will need to change to consistently adapt to the things you learn.

  • I run into the usage of a redundant 's many times doubting my knowledge of English.Now that I get informed I can say that some English writers are obsessed on using the 's even when there is no need for it – user61355 Sep 12 '17 at 18:10
