Takeaway #23: the Learning Curve and #PublicEnemy

***People, people we are the same

        No we’re not the same

        Cause we don’t know the game

        What we need is awareness, we can’t get careless

        You say what is this?

        My beloved lets get down to business

        Mental self defensive fitness***

 Public Enemy Fight the Power

I said you can write an anthology on PE (Public Enemy, not Price to Earnings).  I will not write it here, but the crew deserves at least one other quote.  Plus, BPM knows that you old heads have a lot of those lyrics in your cranium. 

Do you really believe the guy who is making a mint when he says “I just got lucky, I started the same as you?”  If you do, you don’t know his game.  You need to work that much harder.  You have to stay informed in your field.  You can’t get lazy and act in a slipshod fashion about your area of core competency.  If you sleep on the guy next door, he will eat your lunch.

Inherit in doing this, is maintaining mental fitness. Remember, in a 24-7 global economy, there is a guy on the other side of the world right now trying to take yours.  You can sit by and let him take it, or you can be working on the next thing or tightening up your game.
