Just found a brilliant quote over at Creative Generalist. This will now become my standard advice for everyone who wants to get good at planning."Try to learn something about everything and everything about something." - Thomas H. Huxley

Great advice. In fact, the reason I came into planning was because I have been following Huxley's advice for most of my life. Now, I even run a blog - Ten Things I Didn't Know Until Last Week - that ensures that I don't forget about learning new things while going about life. Drop by at http://intenths.blogspot.com.

Richard, you've got the Huxleys mixed up a bit. It was the above quoted Thomas Henry Huxley himslef who was called 'Darwin's Bulldog' for his tenacious defence of Darwin's theories.
Aldous Huxley (not the one quoted above) was T.H. Huxley's grandson.
