The Value of an Apple a Day

I have been reading The Sales Bible: The Ultimate Sales Resource in order to become better at my day job.  The author, Jeffrey Gitomer, gives lots of little tidbits and ideas to get you thinking.  I came across a quote today that got me thinking.  I thought it worth sharing with my readers.  He writes, “An hour of learning a day will make you a world class expert at anything in five years.”  Now of course there’s some hyperbole here.  You can’t be a world-class expert in literally anything, but I’d bet you can become quite close to expert in quite a lot of things.  I read a Rick Warren quote that said that we tend to overestimate what we can accomplish in a year and underestimate what we can accomplish in ten years.

The hard part is to pick just one thing to focus in on.  I want to be an expert in about a dozen different things, and every one seems like the most important thing while I am thinking about it.  I am challenged to narrow it down to one.  How about you?  What would you like to become an expert in?  Are you willing to make it a priority?
