Be A Lifelong Learner

December 1, 2019

As children, we are always curious to learn more about the world and are always ready to go for the things we want to try. As we grow, that inquisitive nature starts to fade out, but we can always be mindful about it.

In this episode, I talk with my guest, David Groom, former Judo athlete, experienced coach, and an EI expert. David shared with us insights he learned from being an athlete for years to being a coach and a mentor to so many young aspiring athletes. He discussed the mindset that he found to be helpful for an individual to thrive professionally and interpersonally. Listen on as we talk about always being a learner and always keeping your inquisitive nature.

David and I also discussed mindfulness practices to help you manage when you are feeling unproductive. For more about me and my work, visit: www.carriebenedet.com
