Eventually, the time that was not spent on learning skills will catch up with you, and the fall will be painful. Robert Greene
There was this one time not so long ago when an old work colleague, Saw me reading,
He was like “ah I’ve never really got into that” (reading) and then spent the next hour’s car journey playing some candy crush game on his phone…
A couple of weeks later after mismanagement from the company messing up the rota we were threatened with disciplinary if we didn’t come in on the Saturday because they were short-staffed.
I refused but my colleague went in.
The difference, I could afford to get fired, Simply by putting into practice the knowledge and skills I’ve learnt over the years from what I’ve read.
Even if you don’t want to be like me and have multiple companies you can still learn skills that will make you a better (unsackable) employee.
Linchpin by Seth Godin – Would be a good place to start.
The world is unpredictable, shit happens but the skills you learn, You’ve got them till you die…
Use your time wisely
