An inquisitive mind is essential. Revert to the days of being a child where you ask ‘why’ about everything. This will ensure that you open yourself up to learn the lessons you need to learn quickly and that you’re continually sharpening the saw.
An inquisitive mind will save you a lot of time and money. The roller coaster of business requires you to be able to bounce back fast and develop the ability to take things in your stride. Once you become comfortable with the ups and downs and see them as part of the course of business, rather than life threatening events, you become a more accomplished business person.
