Simple Wisdom Tip #107: Work Hard on Yourself

A lot of people work hard on their jobs and for their employers but don’t seem to be getting ahead.  And they wonder why.


Business philosopher Jim Rohn often said, “You have to work hard on yourself and not just on your job.”  That means that each of us is totally responsible for our own professional development.  And we need to take it seriously!  We need a plan for professional development – what courses or seminars to take, what new skills to learn, what books to read, what people to meet and cultivate, etc.  


Remember:  For things to get better for you, you have to get better.







Simple Wisdom Tip #106: Be a Lifelong Learner

The Roman scholar Cato reportedly started studying Greek when he was 83.  Someone asked why he tackled such a difficult subject at that point in his life.  “It’s the earliest age I have left,” said Cato, and he went right on studying.


Eric Hoffer said, “In times of change learners inherit the earth while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.”


The moral here is clear:  Be a lifelong learner.  It makes you healthier, happier and wiser.
