Recently I’ve spent time with two great communicators: one has sold over 37 million books and the other is a leader of one of the nation’s largest churches and an amazing teacher. For all practical purposes these men are “on top of their game,” after all they have achieved the kind of professional success most people only dream of achieving. Interestingly, each of them independently of one another asked me the same question:
How can I get better at what I do?
From time to time, I also find myself asking: How can I get better, what do I need to change or learn? It often means reading a new book, attending a seminar or meeting with an expert who can help me break through a problem or a plateau.
What about you? How do you keep from getting stuck in your professional life?
