How to Stay Young Forever!

I was meaning to add something to the Blog last week but didn’t, so I determined that I had to write something today before getting ready for tomorrow’s franchisor training workshop on How to Avoid Litigation.
 One of the advantages of working from my home office is more flexible working hours and, when I can, I take advantage of this to listen to Brian D’Arcy’s  ‘Pause for Thought’ on Monday’s edition of the Chris Evans’ Breakfast Show. I’m glad I did this morning because he announced the secret of how to stay young forever. It wasn’t his secret; it was something said many years ago by Henry Ford but I hadn’t heard it before – he said “Anyone who stops learning is old; anyone who continues learning is young whether they are 18 or 80”. What a gift of a quote for anyone involved in training and personal development!
One of the ‘kicks’ I get out of delivering the Franchise Training Workshops is when someone, and it’s by no means always me, says something that prompts lights to go on in the other delegates’ eyes. That to me is the sign that ‘learning’ has suddenly taken place. But now I know that everyone has also just got a bit younger – Double Bonus!
Want to stay young forever? Now you know how to do it.
