The year is now half over (give or take a handful of change). During its passage, guaranteed, someone somewhere has written and published something new pertaining to your world that you have not yet read. 

This week, I challenge to you rectify that. Carve a few hours out of your schedule to increase your industry-related knowledge.

You've been going guns blazing since January, and it's likely you haven't had time to read the monthly publication pertaining to your world, to watch that educational DVD, or to buy the latest book off the shelves...the one detailing the newest idea. 

What if you make a point of doing so this week? What if you specifically insist on a few hours away from your desk/camera/car/boardroom/elephant, in order to bring yourself right up to date? 

Stay at the pinnacle of knowledge in your domain, and your expertise will remain relevant.
