I saw my friend and colleague Dirk Gilleard this week and he reminded me that we mustn't let anyone tell us or tell our children and young people that we are not bright, not clever and not full of potential.Dirk is working on his book and that will focus on the fact that we can learn whatever skills we need to be more productive, more effective and more successful. Dirk Passionately believes that can become whatever you really, really want to become. You can do whatever you really, really want to do. You can become a touch typist. You can develop expertise with a computer. You can become a terrific negotiator. You can become a super salesperson. You can learn to speak another language. You can learn to play a musical instrument. You can learn to write effectively. You can train to run a marathon. These are all skills and abilities you can acquire, as soon as you decide to and make them a priority in your busy life.
His message to me, as always, was "just do it!".
