As we grow in both knowledge and skills, it is easy to discount or ignore input from people that we perceive as less skilled or knowledgeable than we are. Whose input do we discount? Maybe it is our children, our spouse, our employees, people with less formal education, and . . .repparttar list goes on and on. Is it possible that they see something we don't see? Despite what we think sets us apart from them, could we learn from their perspective and experience? Virtually every successful person I know or know of says that their willingness to continue learning was critical to their success. So for now, I encourage you to remember this simple tip . . . Always be open to learning.
