I have been in the business world for over 30 years. I worked for big companies. I worked for small companies that became big companies. I started a company that made the INC 500 and ran it for over 20 years. I made a million dollars. I lost a million dollars. And I made a million dollars again. I can say, I have a bit of experience.
When I look back at my myriad of business experiences I see one common thread: I was always trying to better myself by learning more. When I worked at one of the original "mini computer" companies, they would publish a Sales Update magazine every two weeks. It had information and updates on all the company's new products, product lines and services. I happened to be in the vertical market that focused on the medical community in Georgia. When that Sales Update would arrive at my desk, I would read it cover-to-cover. And then take it home and read through it again. But, I wouldn't just read the updates on my market, I would read all the updates. And then I would read about my competitors and the entire industry. When I entered into the business world, I had an insatiable thirst for knowledge that would helped me succeed. And it's never stopped. Thankfully. I've always felt that if I wasn't learning more, I was falling behind. (Side note: I wish I had applied this in college!)
If there is any one thing I can point to, that has helped me be successful in business, it is having been a life-long learner. My father had an expression; "If you let the mind go, the body will follow shortly thereafter."
This year, if you are willing to:
· Become an expert in your field.
· Understand or using a new technology.
· Develop a skill you don't have today.
· Share what you have learned with others; then you will be on track to becoming a life-long learner.
The benefits of these experiences will enhance your sense of curiosity, increase your emotional connections and build business success. Plus, they will help you become a more well-rounded person. Commit to becoming a life-long learner in 2015 and have your best year (and career) yet.
