There is an old Japanese Proverb that says, “One day with a great teacher is better than a thousand days of diligent study.”

It reminds me of something a friend told me when I started grad school.  He said, “Take the professor, not the class.” It was great advice.

When it comes to being a great leader, being a great learner is vital.  Leaders are learners.

During the coming week I encourage you to schedule a time to meet with someone who can teach you something.

Read, study, and even take classes if you want.  But make sure you also find yourself a great teacher. Because “One day with a great teacher is better than a thousand days of diligent study.”
