What Have I Learned Today?

Momentum is a waste of time!
Momentum is the greatest opportunity for me to learn all year.
Those are polar opposite statements. Both are true. It's your choice.
"Intelligent people are always eager and ready to learn." Proverbs 18:15
We all know Fred. He comes to Momentum every year to hang around with his friends, eat donuts with the new band Hercules and the Chicken Fat People, and brag about all the nifty things he's doing at his 2.0 share radio station. After Momentum Fred returns to his station and implements nothing he's heard. Sadly, Fred has decided that he already knows everything.
"When do you think most people stop learning?
Is it when we already know how to do something? Is it when we have some success under our belts? Is it when we imagine there's nothing left to learn, no one knows something we don't, or when we come to believe we know it all? Whenever it is, it's too soon, and it's too bad, because we've always got a lot to learn...no matter how much we already know." Mark Beeson
Here's a suggestion:
This year at Momentum write down the 3 most important things you hear from each speaker or seminar. Prioritize these items into an action plan with specific dates when they will be integrated into your day to day activities. That one suggestion could make the difference on whether you say Momentum was a waste of time or the greatest opportunity to learn all year.
"Do yourself a favor and learn all you can; then remember what you learn and you will prosper." Proverbs 19:8
