How to Squeeze More Learning onto an Already Full Plate
 
Greetings, Ninja!

Here’s one thing you’ve gotta love about Ninjas: we don’t rest on our laurels. When we pull off a killer event or wrap up an intense research project, we take a moment to celebrate. But then it’s on to the next big thing.

If we wanted to do the same thing day after day, we would have picked another profession. We’re Ninjas because we thrive on new challenges. We’re not happy unless we’re growing, evolving, and collecting new skills.

This week is all about learning—how we learn and why it’s important to make time for continuing education. And, of course, we’ve pulled together some excellent resources for teaching yourself everything from cryptocurrency basics to advanced project management.

Sharpen your pencils, and put on your thinking cap, Ninja. School’s back in session!

Rock on!
