Are you the CEO of your destiny who is investing towards your future – learning and sharpening the game?
Great musicians never stop trying to improve; great athletes never stop trying to improve – so why should that not be true for everyone else.
However, it is rather common that many of us stop investing towards learning once formal education is over. Class room education may stop but quest for learning and keeping up with the changing landscape should remain high on the personal agenda. Whatever it is that one want to be better at – can be better – should a person keep hunger in the belly to learn and create opportunities to apply.
It remain a key difference that set apart individuals who succeed from others. Successful individuals never stop applying new learning. They can be gauged by their curiosity to learn and apply everyday. One key metrics – just check their book shelf. It is common for them to read several books a month.
So ask yourself – what is competing for your time that takes away personal obligation towards investing in yourself and learning?
One way is to make a commitment – find books/on-line material/social networking groups/etc. that are relevant to an individual profession and get started. Good books can be the single best personal investment and life mentor.
