Some people will remain forever where they are or regress. Never progress.
Not that they are stupid or anything. On the contrary, they are well read and learn a lot.
Problem is they do not internalize what they learn and start to apply it.
Whether it is someone accumulating properties or a business owner deciding on the brand’s future.
They think they are open but they are not. They think they know but truly they do not. No matter how much you try to educate them. They may accept the lessons but they will never apply it. They will never act upon it.
They don’t get it.
