CRJboy, do you speak a foreign language? If not, try to learn an "unusual" one or two, but still from places with lots of BA
Swahili comes to mind, as do Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish (good luck
), Hungarian, Czech, Russian, Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese...
Foreign languages have not been the most important factor in my career, but certainly one of them. I helps to be the only one in the company who speaks French, Italian and Swedish when we have so many customers in those countries.
And if nothing else, languages are a great way to understand the underlying culture.
