"Anders Petersen showed me that photography is a way of life in itself," Jacob Aue Sobol once told me. "Just the way he immerses himself in the subject.

This post was written by the Greenlight Research Institute Staff. The English language is full of sayings about change being hard: Better the devil you know.
In my last post, I talked about the importance of assessing your strengths and weaknesses to close the learning and skills gaps holding you back from achieving your career goals.
