The world is constantly changing. In canoe slalom what worked last year, might not work this year. Or even crazier, in business, what worked yesterday may not work today. This is the world that we live in.
So how do you stay relevant, how do you keep up to date with the latest tactics, methods etc in any industry whether you are an athlete, businessman, scientist, it does not matter?
The key is to become a learning machine. The key is to listen, watch, learn and study the game and your competitors. You must become hungry for information. Need to be constantly soaking up information like a sponge. That’s the “secret”.
Of course there are the basics and fundamentals in anything but at the top everybody knows the fundamentals. What will set you apart, especially in business is spotting trends before anyone. At the end of the day, in any competitive environment, AKA the world, you only have to be a little bit ahead of your competition.
This is exactly why very recently I have started to watch and study the athletes that are at the top in my sport. See what separates them, see what they are doing differently. Always have to be curious.
