"Whether you think you can, or think you
can't, you will always be right!"

Life Long Learning And The Committed Entrepreneur

How serious are you?

If you're a serious business owner and a committed entrepreneur - or aspire to be one - then when was the last time you read a business book, completed a training and development programme or have your very own business performance coach?

What business book are you reading today?

What business book are you reading today?

Well, the old saying "that you never stop learning" should be every business owner and entrepreneur's mantra.

"So what business book are you
reading today?"

Well, last week I re-read "The Power of Focus" by Canfield J, Hansen MV and Hewitt L, which enabled me to focus on three specific business goals. This week I've selected Nancy Kline's "Time to Think", which is a business book about 10 behaviours that form a system called a 'Thinking Environment™', a model of human interaction that dramatically improves the way people think, and thus the way they work and live.

Listening - the quality of people's attention for each other - is the core of this method. One of the best bits is using an egg timer in meetings to only allow a speaker to speak for two minutes!

"This is very powerful as it ensures the message is succinct and shuts up those that waffle on!"

So if you're really serious about becoming an entrepreneur, then what business book are you going to read this week, what training and development programmes are going to book on to? Or even, is it time to get yourself a business/performance coach?

Until next time ...
