Today marks the end of my second month locked in my house due to the coronavirus and COVID-19. I've been out for exercise and to deliver birthday greetings to a few friends (via drive-by in a car) but I have not entered a building other than my home since March 12, 2020.  

While this time locked away with my family has been stressful and challenging, it has been highly beneficial in many ways. Not the least of these opportunities has been a challenge I've given to myself to learn and grow while locked away from the world.  This challenge has resulted in the reinvention of many different aspects of my business and life. This growth and, more importantly, this dedication to DAILY growth is a competitive advantage for me and my business.   

I cover these growth opportunities in today's show and we discuss how you can use them as a competitive advantage in your business.

There are many places we can learn new things each day. We can discover new things at work or related to business.  Places to look include: 
  • The economy. 
  • Your industry. 
  • Your business. 
  • Your job.
You can discover new things at home. Each day you should look to find out something new about:
  • Your country. 
  • Your state. 
  • Your county
  • Your city. 
  • Your neighborhood. 
  • Hobbies. 
  • Family. 
  • Friends. 
  • Sports. 

Now if you need reasons to strive to learn something new every day, here are six:
  1. Learning gets you high. It's a scientific fact that when your curiosity is aroused, dopamine is released and that gives you a feeling of wellbeing. 
  2. Learning helps you start conversations. The more you know, the more you can discuss with others. This is good for business it can help you start conversations and deepen relationships.
  3. Learning helps you make more money. As you discover new things you begin implementing them in your business. This leads to additional revenue. 
  4. Learning sets a good example for others. If you want your employees to grow, you need to lead the way. 
  5. Learning helps you make friends. The people who teach you things can also become friends. The people with whom you learn, will also become friends. Seminars, classes and business learning sessions are terrific growth opportunities.  
  6. Learning helps you build self-esteem. The more you know, the better you feel. Knowledge is power and power makes us feel good about ourselves. 
Here's the bottomline: 

Each day provides you with almost limitless opportunities to learn and grow. If you let one day pass you by without learning something new, you are missing out on tremendous value.
