Work Smart: I Never Want To Be As Smart As…

Motivational Quote – I’m always on the listen for the next best quote….

The best quote in my new venture came from a wise leader in our organization.  “I never want to be as smart as just me.”  It caught my attention.  But what it said was that you always need to be sharpening the saw.  Learning new things.  Don’t get complacent. I, you, can always learn something from someone. Guaranteed.

In the marketing realm, it’s always changing.  So, while you can do the ‘act of marketing’ well, the players are always changing.  From this quote, I learn I won’t work in isolation.  Just because I’m good at one thing, doesn’t mean I’m done.  Constant learning.

Remember that as you venture out.  Take pride in your history.  It is your foundation.  But don’t be satisfied with just what you know.  Learn from others.

The world is our classroom.
