I’ve been involved in a lot of conversations lately about the importance of people learning new things outside of their comfort zone in their personal lives and outside of their field of expertise at work. Our rehearsed elevator pitches can only take us so far…it’s the supplemental details that come after our spiel that can come in handy and keep all of us relevant long after first impressions have passed. Too often, we tend to fall into a routine, a robotic trance that’s blissfully hugged by a sense of familiarity. Why fix something if it isn’t broken? Well, just because it’s not broken doesn’t mean it’s the best. Next time you feel like your creativity and potential is being suffocated with business as usual, do something about it. Whether discovering a new hobby, developing a dormant natural talent or reading self-help books, if you don’t keep continually developing your skills and perspective, there will inevitably come a time when you’ll become irrelevant. And, let’s face it: Nobody wants to be a has-been. So before you become ancient history, get a grip of your future by actively — and consistently — evolving yourself NOW before it’s too late.
