In order to be relevant and to keep relevant you need to keep in touch with current trends, philosophies and approaches.
How can you do this? Here are the simple methods -
- Read. Join your local library and borrow books. Readers lead and leaders read. Good libraries update their books often. If your library doesn't - ask! Your local librarian might just need some good ideas of what people want to read.
- Surf. Jump on the Internet and seek out teaching and lessons from the top leaders of our time. There are a lot of websites that exist with top content.
- iTunesU. Download the latest lessons from the worlds best Universities every week!
- Listen. Often times the language that is being used by the 'guru's' doesn't take long to permeate into everyday language.
If you are able to keep current with modern thinking and activities - you position yourself well for tomorrow.
