When you work, there is always a chance to learn something new, and like the old saying goes, 'You learn something new everyday.' There’s not a day that goes by that you don’t learn something...There’s no tomorrow, there’s just today. If there’s something you really wanna do, go to it. Don’t put off until tomorrow what you wanna do today."
