Motivational Quote: Learning

“You must learn from the mistakes of others, because you can’t possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.” – Sam Levenson


What was the best career advice for me?

Guustaff Vocking, a partner at SARV & AIMS International a Management Consulting and Coaching firm in the Netherlands recently asked this question on LinkedIn:

What was the best career advice for you?

Here is what I wrote:

Hi Gustaff,

The Best career advice ever is to never stop learning.
And in my learning I have picked up a few other gems, such as:

1. The key to business is personal relationships.
2. Give more value for your work than the money you are paid. That way you will be viewed as an Investment and not a Cost.
3. “You can get anything you want in life, as long as you help enough other people get what they want.” -Zig Ziglar

I hope this helps.

Making a difference,
