Find Yourself a Teacher

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.”

I love the idea, Randy!
Could you give us some tips and ideas on how to find that person (maybe in a future post)?

Such a great reminder every leader needs to remember. I make it a point to daily grow. Either through reading, listening, attending, or being around people that will allow me to grow.
