1 thought on “Episode 6: Self-Development”

  1. I just finished and really enjoyed your “Self-Development” podcast. Since I am now retired, the career self-development didn’t apply, but I agree we are always developing or growing in our personal life. We can “grow set in our ways” or realize we will always need to develop and improve our skills. These skills could be technical, social, or spiritual. I read a book that used the phrase “being the best version of yourself”. I believe your podcast emphasized the same principle.
