If you do not train yourself constantly to learn about humanity, business, places, and ideas, you are just asking for defeat. As some CEOs weighed in:
"I can find a lot of ambitious, hardworking people, but I want creativity, and that comes from curiosity. . . It's a huge turn-off to me if someone isn't curious. It's disorienting."
"Even if you're number one, you'd better learn something new, and you'd better keep challenging yourself, or they are going to forget about you."
"I will fire a person who has no ambition to learn on his or her own."
