Professional Development is not a maybe I’ll get to it. It’s absolutely critical to your professional and financial life.
Reading, seminars, listening to books are invaluable tools that broaden your paradigm and open you up to new ways of thinking and viewing the world.
From a work perspective what PD does is it puts you in the “value” up scale not the “risk” scale.
Below is a list of audiobooks that I have listened to in 2016. In total, I have listened to well over 480 audio books in 13 years and that does not include ongoing formal education and seminars/coaching I’ve attended and completed.
Some might be thinking, “I’m just too busy” and can’t fit another “to do task” in the list. You know what not many can, so listening and or read in N.E.T (no extra time events), like commuting and exercising.
The fact is that one of these books or classes are run by some of the world’s best instructors. They may give you an insight that will change your life both professional and personal life forever. Biggest investment you can make is in yourself. Get to.
