In order to evolve — we need believe that we can continue to learn new things. That we remain a work in progress. That who we are (and might become) is neither fixed or predetermined.
The book below focuses on this very topic. It hasn’t yet appeared on my Books! page. Yet it should be there, as 2018 is just around the corner.
Moving forward we should embrace a healthy perspective. One that would help us expand our horizons. (This extends to the organizations in which we work as well). One that allows us to move beyond where we find ourselves.
To take risks and value learning. To learn from each other.
A realization that our minds are not stagnant, but ready to blossom (again).
So, leave the lights on.
Our potential is unknown.
Cheers to that.
