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.”
Who was the best teacher you ever had?
