I had to catch my mind up with my body. You probably already work on your body, your nutrition, your health…. It’s now time to work on your development. This will make you a better husband, dad, mom, fire fighter, cop, friend, you name it. It did for me.
If you ever stop learning, stop developing, your doomed. An old dog CAN and should learn new tricks unless they want to be left behind. Think about what would have happened if you hadn’t tried to learn the cell phone technology “Trick”. You’d still be walking around with your Miami Vice brick phone.
Listen to audio, read books, learn from mentors, learn from people who have been there and done it. Just learn. Learn what to do, but also what NOT to do.
