If you are trying to sort out all the massive change around us, you have just got to check out Look, Lead, Love, Learn: Four Steps to Better Business, a Better Life – and Conquering Complexity in the Process by Bill Sheridan.
On 10-29 and 10-30 it is free at Amazon.
How can we possible cope with all the massive change around us? One way is to open our brain to learn and be willing to constantly be learning more.
In an era of great change, the most important skill we will possess going forward is the ability to learn new skills.
Why not just coast to retirement? Without growth and change, we may not be employable until then. Another reason? It’s more fun to be engaged in life:
We only get one shot at this thing called life, folks. It’s simply too short to do things that suck. So find your passion. Get good at it. Work hard. Demand excellence from yourself.
Life is too short. I choose to do fun, exciting, interesting, professionally rewarding stuff.
More from Mr. Sheridan on learning:
Just learn something. Then learn something else. Then share it. Don’t forget about that part— share what you’ve learned with others. Help other people learn. … The point is this: Always be learning. Most everything else is a waste of our all-too-short lives.
If you do that, you will then be able to cope with all the massive change that threatens to overwhelm us.
By the way, CPAs get paid to learn and grow and share what they know. How cool is that?
Again, if you are trying to sort out the crazy out-of-control change that is everywhere, get started. This book would be a great place to dig in.
