Here’s the bad news: No matter how
happy you are with your life right now, things will change.
Here’s the good news: It doesn’t have to be for the worse.
Because life is a continuous process of change, the best
way to progress through it is to keep learning. The minute you
stop learning, you’re history.
People younger than you
will start saying you’re “Old School” and calling you a dinosaur
behind your back.
You’ve probably worked with people who
get to a point where they think they can coast through the rest
of their career. They become “Career Zombies” who don’t want to
learn anything new.
“Change” is like a four-letter word
to them, and working with them is a royal pain for you. (Do you
have a name and face in mind???)
When you stagnate,
someone else will keep evolving and learning. And sooner or
later, they’ll replace you.
In order to survive in
today’s ultra-competitive marketplace, companies need ambitious
employees that are hungry to learn. Employees that will keep
evolving and help the company as it evolves and adapts to the
new realities of business.
To make sure you don’t get
left behind, follow these three simple steps:

and learning more about your industry, you do more than keep up
with the latest practices. You show your employer that you’re
continuously looking to improve yourself, which makes you a
greater asset to your company.
Don’t Confuse Tools with Toys
a technology is hip doesn’t mean it’s useful. Your kids may
think you’re a dinosaur for not using Twitter, Instagram,
Snapchat, etc. But those are toys that most companies don’t care
about because they don’t make money. (For those who swear social
media is a huge money maker, show me how and I’ll pay you
3. If Opportunities Don’t
Present Themselves to You, Create Them
Stephen Covey’s mega bestselling book, “The 7 Habits of
Highly Effective People”, the first habit was being
proactive instead of reactive. If you don’t see opportunities
for growth, ask your employer what you can do to grow, improve
your skills, and make yourself more valuable to your company.
There’s a TREMENDOUS amount of power in asking this question,
because it communicates to your employer that you don’t want to
be the dinosaur that gets left behind.
Whatever you do in
life, the process of learning has to be a continuous one if you
want to be successful.
To Your Success,
you have employees who are “allergic” to change,
