Must Read Books/How to Master a Skill
How often are you actively investing in furthering your education? How often are you scheduling out time in your day to listen to a podcast, take an online course, read a book, attend a conference or panels, meet with a mentor, etc.
Take a moment and think about it. When was the last time that you set aside time to invest in your education and actually learn something new. And no, mandatory events and workshops from your work do not count.
If it’s been more than a week since you did this, then this ones for you!
You should be setting time aside every single week to learn something new. If you want to stand out and be truly successful, you have to develop a specialized skill set and not just develop it but seek to master it.
Mastery doesn’t happen by chance. It is the result of intentionally and consistently investing time, effort and dedication.
If you feel like you genuinely don’t have time during the week. Then Sunday is a great day to dedicate to this. And it shouldn’t feel like a chore. In fact, this is a time that I genuinely look forward to every week.
So, if you’re looking for a new book and/or if this dedication sounds anything like you, then I highly recommend you check out @garyvee newest book - Crushing It. I’m sure most of you already know/follow @garyvee but for anyone who doesn’t, this guy is truly impressive and inspiring!
