The more time you spend inside a classroom, the less time you’re in the real world.

This is the dilemma most of us face, as we grow up. The accumulation of book smarts results in a lack of street smarts, and vice versa. So, the question becomes: how do we manage our time? How do we best equip ourselves to master both the interpersonal and intellectual languages?

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing the balance of street smarts and book smarts. When we lean too heavily in one direction, our skills become lopsided and as a result, our career trajectory may flatten.

Tune in to today’s episode to learn how to manage these sometimes opposing forces, so you can maximize your potential!
