I Can’t Take on Another New Project

Posted by & filed under Success Tips.

Contrary to popular belief, everyone is a thief; we are all thieves of ideas. This is how our society advances because someone somewhere figures out another use for an existing idea or concept, adds to it with their own interpretation, and improves it.

Before one must learn something new, he or she must be willing to learn new things. Many times MSPs… Read more »
