Are You a Hunter?
A few weeks ago I was teaching one of the modules in the Star Achievement Series. I was with a terrific and creative group of administrative professionals for the 8th time so I had come to know them very well.
There is one woman in the class who always makes us laugh. She is smart, fun, and always eager to learn even though she has been in the field for many years. She has a unique way of presenting information and her thoughts.
This particular day of class she described herself as a hunter. At first I thought, “Oh, that isn’t good.” But then when she explained to me what she meant, it made perfect sense. She said, “I’m a hunter because I’m always hungry to learn. I hunt down information and scout out people from whom I can grow.” Wow! Now that impressed me. I liked her analogy.
Do you have the mindset of a hunter? Are you hungry to learn new things? Are you open to new adventure? Do you go after information? Do you track down resources to help you do your job better?
