Increase Your Learning; Accelerate Your Career
Are you looking to accelerate your career? Do you know everything you need to know about what it takes to succeed in your career? “It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts,” says former President Harry S, Truman. Do you want a breakthrough in your personal success this year? Why not seek a positive change? Why not help your employees succeed more? Their success determines your success as a leader.
An interesting fact shows that only 13% of people read a book a month. Nearly half of all people read fewer than two books a year. Accenture found that only 21% of employees attended a company sponsored training program in the last five years. In other words, too many people are “stuck” in the status quo. In this rapidly changing world, the lack of a commitment to on-going learning, self-directed or company driven, is a liability. People who accelerate their learning, also accelerate their career. Therefore, they have an edge.
For example, I am reminded of a story. I was at the YMCA getting dressed after a workout. Two guys walked in and started talking while preparing to shower. One guy said to the other, “I can’t take it anymore. I quit on my New Year’s resolutions.” It was January 19th.

Most leaders fail with their goals because they lack team development, and systematic process for attainment. Likewise, employees fail because they get comfortable. It is one thing to set a goal; it is another to consistently act on it. To begin, identify your strengths and areas for improvement as a leader or employee. Benchmark yourself with the best. Remember, to be all you can be you must dream of being more.
Do one more!
Famed football coach George Allen often took defeated and older teams and made them champions. He was asked, how he did it. He said, “We did one more.” In other words, they studied, worked out and planned a little extra. His teams always did more preparation than the competition. That’s how you accelerate your career success.
In conclusion, Anthony Robbins declares, “If you keep doing what you have always done, you will keep getting what you have always got.” I say it positively, change your thinking and habits, and you will change your success in life and as a leader.
