(Our premise is this: If plan A fails you still have twenty-five other options.)
Training either is or it isn't. That is such a simple statement, yet the truth is self-evident.
And if we have failed at something, in most cases the root cause lies in a deficit in training in some form or fashion.
Knowledge is easily acquired. The bigger issue is this … do we have the will to acquire it?
It is the old adage – you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.
The steps are these:
-In what area does one need more training?
-How deeply do we need to plunge in gaining training? Do we need another college degree, or will a seminar work? Can a book or two remedy the deficit?
This topic is not one that is easily laid out in ten easy steps. The beginning of the journey is found with acknowledging the problem. The rest of the steps are as diverse as we individuals are diverse.
The will to learn – that is the essence of acquiring training.
