I think of financial resources as gasoline.
The question I keep on finding myself asking is "Why do I even care?" "Is this worth worrying about?" "Should I be spending my time on this?"
I have always been a proponent of mastering the little things. I think that little nuances and complexities can differentiate success from failure. I have seen, first hand, that doing the little things, over a really long period of time, compound into really big things and that this process ultimately can get you to where you want to be.
I think we all say that we do well with harsh, direct feedback - but the reality is not the case. For a while, I took everything literally and personally.
The biggest criticism I have gotten from readers over the past nearly 600 days of publishing every single day is that many of the ideas and things I write about are not extremely well thought out.
We all have messy drawers in our life.
I am realizing more and more that a big part of a "career" is figuring out how you can be valuable to other people - so valuable in fact, that other people (and companies) will actually pay you money for your time.
I wrote the other day about the importance, to me, of patience. Today, I am writing about urgency. Well, not exactly urgency as a whole (as I have written about that before), but rather tools or mechanisms we use in our own lives to instill urgency with what we do.
If you were to ask my friends, I'd surely not be known as the most patient of the bunch.
That feeling you get when you discover something new has always inspired me.
