Now bloggy stuff.
Last Friday was my last class of Scottsdale Leadership.
I will start by telling you that I am a little sad that it is over. It has been really nice to escape from the world and immerse myself into the community every other Friday.
There have been a lot of great moments over the last 9 months. I now have a very well rounded idea of how a city really operates and I am aware of many things that I never knew even existed and the fact that there are so many leaders in so many fields, it kind of makes the mind spin.
When I first signed up for the course I did it with the idea of business networking in mind and if I learn a thing or two, great but my mind was focused on business development.
After the first 2 classes I realized that this was going to go an entirely different way than how I thought it would, which is the case most of the time.
Turns out that yes I have developed some business contacts that will be with me forever but more important I gained a better understanding of people and most important a better understanding of myself and how I view things.
My perspective has opened up to a level that I never imagined and I am now trying new things and pushing my self to greater limits than I ever have.
An important message I learned is that if one is to progress professionally one must progress personally first.
Today is the ending of one of the greatest experiences of my life and the beginning of the rest of it. I guarantee that it is only going to get better from here no matter what kind of curve ball the world tries to through at me.
Now there is not competition there are only colleagues, I no longer provide a service I provide a product, there are no bad clients just confused people that need my guidance, all clients are awesome and I can learn from all of them, besides I can always decline or fire them, this list goes on and on.
Point being is that we can develope our skill all day long and be very good at our craft but for me personally it will never be enough. I want more.
How do I get more? I work at it everyday.
