The most important investment and the best Asset

“The most important investment you can make is in yourself. Very few people get anything like their potential horsepower translated into the actual horsepower of their output in life. Potential exceeds realization for many people … The best asset is your own self. You can become to an enormous degree the person you want to be.”— Warren Buffett

An easy way to understand this is by looking at your to-do list. If you are seeing some items from previous weeks, congrats! You are a procrastinator…

If you are delaying important but cumbersome tasks and focusing on more enjoyable easier tasks, let’s put it like this, you are not lazy but only restricting your potential!

The thing is, labeling yourself as a procrastinator is mentally tiring. Once you accept, it goes all the way to your daily tasks. Everything starts to look like a chore.

Although I have never called myself a procrastinator, I tend to push the limits of deadlines for almost every task by doing almost nothing tangible initially.

So, I have some advice!

Mentally prepare yourself for your tasks! Coming up with a conceptual framework is half of the job at hand, whatever it is.

If you have five minutes to cut down a tree, use your first three minutes to sharpen your axe!

I came across a word of wisdom from an ancient Jewish King, Solomon. He stated: “If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed…” (Ecclesiastes 10:10a)

It’s the famous quote from Abraham Lincoln, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”

So, if you are going through a period of exhaustion:

  • Layoffs
  • Work Stress
  • Parenting
  • Relational Issues
  • Toxic People
  • All of the Above

Realize that you need to take time to regain strength and energy by renewing yourself physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. It’s important. Not just for yourself, but for everyone who depends on you to be at your best.
