The last four days, I had the privilege of attending the 2015 Fortune Magazine/Gazelles Growth Summit, in Dallas, Texas.
Four days with my fellow Gazelles coaches and presentations by some of the greatest business thought leaders (and authors) of our day: Ron Kaufman on Uplifting Service, Adele Revella on Buyer Persona, Andrew Davis on Brandscaping, John Mullins on The Customer-Funded Business, Jeff Sutherland on Scrum, David Rendall on The Freak Factor, and Verne Harnish on Scaling Up.
We shared ideas, debated issues and sharpened our saws.
This session impacted my entire being – brain, heart, soul and spirit. At the core is the love of learning. I want to continue learning. To not learn means I stop growing, expanding and changing and I start dying (little by little each day).
I want you to keep learning about whatever it is that you love, whatever it is you are passionate about. Read books, magazines, blogs and articles. Watch videos, YouTube and webinars. Listen to podcasts and audiobooks or any other way you like to learn.
You will become smarter and discover new parts of yourself, plus you will impact and inspire others – your family, friends, teams, colleagues and associates. And there is no greater gift that you can give.
