10 years ago when I was doing my undergraduate program my friends used to call me “Senator”. I was the President of the student's organization and I had information on everything happening in our community. I was able to anticipate things before they happen and plan ahead. My most memorable achievement was when I was able to win an election of 600 people while having only 12 people on my side. That is a story for another day. Over time I have been practicing this great skill of “Staying Informed” and teach it to my colleagues and team member. This is how you do it.
