“You’re responsible for your own personal and professional development” - Dave Adams
I can be a big whiner. I can complain about the smallest thing. I had just picked up my friend Dave from the airport and I began to express my unhappiness about my employer not investing some serious budget money into my development. “Don’t they care about me?” I lamented. Like only a friend could do he looked at me with his intense stare and bluntly proclaimed, “They’re not responsible for your personal and professional development-you are!” Ouch!
Never again did I expect someone to pick up the tab for my development. I’M RESPONSIBLE! You’re responsible for your own development. Period. So pick up a book, read a blog or listen to podcasts. You’re responsible for your own personal and professional development.
