By dedicating yourself to lifelong learning, there’s no limit to how much better you can make yourself. In doing so, you increase the value you bring to the marketplace. As Buckminster Fuller said, “You can’t learn less.” Tony Robbins: “If we habitually focus on how to improve things that are already great, can you see how this spirit can transform ourselves, our organizations, families and communities?”

Jack Welch: “I was afraid of the internet because I couldn’t type.”

Stephen King: “If you don’t have the time to read, you don’t have the time or the tools to write.”

Queen Elizabeth II: “It's all to do with the training: you can do a lot if you’re properly trained.”

Action Point: 
Improve your mind. Enhance your skills. Increase your knowledge. Read at least an hour a day from books that will help you get better at what you do. Listen to educational audio programs in your car. Attend courses and seminars that can give you ideas and insights to help you advance your career
