When it comes to learning something new, I’m hungry. If a day or week goes by and I don’t learn something new, I feel like telling myself, “Michael, you’re doing it wrong.” I’m hungry because the openness to learn, to be a “lifelong learner,” means you’re never done, you’re never satisfied and you never become complacent. Complacency is poison. This refusal to continuously seek out new ideas, keep up to date on emerging trends, and know when to pivot and double down on personal and professional growth, is toxic. It’s toxic on an individual level and even more destructive on an organizational level because when you get to that level, then you have “Blockbuster vision”. If don’t know what Blockbuster vision is, it’s when you see a competitor (Netflix) disrupting your industry with a brand new way of doing things and you write them off as a fad. Then you go bankrupt.
