A great way to grow faster is to be around people who are smarter than you in your chosen area of growth. Hang around people who have thought a lot about the subject, have come up with new ideas, have ‘lived it’.
So take this as an action. Think about what area of skill or knowledge you want to develop. Then find out who is good at it and figure out a way to ‘hang out’ with them. This could mean buying them lunch, but also in this internet age, that could be virtual by reading their blogs and joining their online discussion groups.
These day you have access to experts worldwide and you will find that experts often love to share.
Something else you will find with this approach is that you learn faster and more easily than you expected because you are engaged with the process.
