"The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago; the second best time is today." -- Chinese Proverb
Despite it's importance, few organizations invest meaningful time and money growing their leaders. It's what Ben Franklin called, "Being penny wise and pound foolish."
If your organization is not putting the money into you, you must invest in the most most valuable asset in the world -- yourself. It's more important than any material wealth.
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” -- Charles Darwin
