    Great post! So many people try and divide their skills these days instead of trying to expand their abilities and learn a new skill. I run a small business and I ensure that everyone has a goal to learn a new skill or improve their ability to do something every year. At the end of the year I ensure that everyone who has progressed get awesome corporate gifts as a reward.
