The Importance of Learning

My first boss was wonderful and he believed in lifelong learning, both in your work and personal life. Here is a story he told me

"The baby mice were just a few days old and having fun when a large black shadow fell over them so they stopped playing. A huge tomcat was towering above them licking his lips and anticipating lunch. Quick as a flash the mother mouse jumped over her babies, looked straight at the Tomcat and barked "Woof! Woof!"
The cat startled and ran. "Let that be a lesson to you" said the mother mouse. "Never underestimate the importance of learning a second language"

In your work and life you all have important skills, improving and learning new ones ensures that your personal brand stays fresh and increases in value to those around you.
