Reading and Networking – The Keys To Growth

February 8th, 2007 · 1 Comment

I just heard a great one from my friend Benjamin Bach.

“In 5 years, you’ll be exactly the same as you are now except for the books you read and people you met.” — Charlie Jones

The moral of the story: read more books and meet more people! This year, I’ve started keeping a list of “Books to Read” in Outlook, and have made a concerted effort to get out there and network! I can’t directly measure the ROI, but I know I have learned a lot and have opened a lot of doors.

    I dont’ necessarily agree with that quote…..i’d like to think that there is a lot more change that is going on….such as places we’ve traveled, things you’ve experienced…:-D
