Looking straight ahead can make you miss things. When you do your life, do you take notice of the things peripherally? Do you see them in a different perspective? The route to work. What opportunities do you see?
Knowledge helps you take notice. The more you know, the more you are attuned. When you are in a conversation, do you see the opportunities? Can you capitalize on them? Do you know how to take a conversation to the next step? How will you do it? If you are not growing, your perspective will not either.
