There are lessons we learn in school and there are those lessons, skills and habits we acquire out of school. For those who learn in a different manner, those that can be distracted and others that just love to use their time to leverage the right side of their brain, this is the episode for you.
Not every valuable lesson for the business world is taught in the classroom. In fact, it much the opposite. Real skills are acquired and built away from the classroom, where we can focus our attention on what makes us happy, what drives us and what ultimately gives us work that is satisfying.
In this episode we interview Nicolas Cole. Cole as he goes by with his friends is a regular writer for Inc Magazine, a top writer on the platform Quora, and runs Digital Press, https://www.digitalpress.com/ , a content marketing agency that helps founders, CEO’s and other top executives with personal branding.
Cole wrote the article 9 Valuable Lessons I learned in the Real World featured on Inc Magazine and that’s why he’s on this episode of Overcoming Distractions the Podcast.
This article and of course this podcast episode is a huge wakeup call to those who want reassurance that what they have learned by being and working in the real word is just as, if not more important than what they learned in school.
