Books. Magazines. Blogs. Newspapers. Fine and dandy. But, what's the most important knowledge to pick up? *Drumrooooooooooooooooll* Self-improvement. According to superstar business guru, Jim Collins:

[The most important trait of an entrepreneur is the discipline of self-improvement.] When Verdi, at age 82, was working on a new opera, he was asked why. He responded that he thought he still had a few years to get it right. I met [Hewlett-Packard co-founder] David Packard in 1995, and he was still living in modest circumstances, but he was still very excited with what HP was doing. They were both satisfied with themselves, not with what they were doing.

As an entrepreneur, get in the habit of asking yourself: "What can I do better today than I did yesterday?" It's simple, sweet, quick, and easy. You won't need to jump to immediate breakthrough right away (Besides, you can't.) You build successful, incremental, and positive steps toward self-improvement. Word. ("What can I do better today than I did yesterday?" "What can I do better today than I did yesterday?" "What can I do better today than I did yesterday?" "What can I do better today than I did yesterday?" Simple.)
