Two of our most valuable resources are time and money.
A quick way to assess how someone approaches their life is by paying attention to the words they use to describe these two measures. Do they “spend” their time or do they “invest” it in something that will have a long-term impact? Do they “spend” their money or “invest” it in something that will pay dividends back to them later?
Time is finite, and for most of us, money is too. The next time you’re tempted to waste time or money, pause to consider how you might act instead. Your life will be much fuller if you invest these riches in ways that benefit you beyond the moment.
What does that investment look like for you?
