What if you spent a moment to consider how to get that extra leap in life? I'll use the word "leap" as an acrostic.
Learn - be in a constant learning mode. Sources: blogs, social engagement, other media. Borrow from the wisdom of others. Also, listen to the feedback and input others give you.
Adapt - Be willing to consider new information, be able to ebb and flow with the changing technology and new information. Think rubber band. Stay flexible.
Practice - Put your skills to work so that you remain sharp and focused. Spend extra time on your skills, whatever they may be. Put in more time on the planning side so that you're ready to take on the demands of your schedule.
