Always Be Learning
A trait of successful people is the desire to constantly be learning something new. John Baker started in the military as a sergeant and 40 years later retired as a Colonel. At 86 years of age he recently registered for and attended our CompTIA Security + course. I had the pleasure of doing an exit interview with him once his course was complete. It became apparent to me during our interview that John is a lifetime learner and this trait is one of his keys to a successful career.
One of the key differences between your average, stay-in-the-same-place employee and a organizational leaders is the desire to learn and grow.
