Invest in who?

Invest in yourself.

That’s what regular exercise, a balanced diet, and adequate rest are – investments.

Do you deserve it?

Of course.

Are you willing to invest in yourself?

Not a trick question by the way.

It’s probably one or the other for all of as we travel through life

Spaceship Earth
Hometown = Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow


It’s one or the other for us as we travel through life attempting something incredibly lofty:

  • our efforts will change our life
  • our efforts were the biggest waste of our time

Faith, reason, and hard work are never a 100% guarantee.

There are only two regrets in life:

  1. We didn’t try hard enough and failed
  2. We tried too hard and wasted our resources

Life is hard.

And full of uncertainty.

Be intentional which ever way we choose. No?

Is art the sculpture, the child’s bear’s travels, both, or neither? Invest in art.


Wealth is how long we can live after we stop working.

It is not a specific dollar amount.

It’s a balance of expenses and cash flow.

Never invest your money in anything that eats or needs repairing.  – Billy Rose

When they match we are golden.

A deficiency in income means we have to keep working to make up the deficit.

Are You Serious? (part 2)

Here’s the secret to “Are You Serious”, from yesterday’s post.

Think. Read.  Watch. Listen.  Talk. Write.  Blog.

A lot.

Then repeat.

For example.  I invested about about 30 minutes Sunday to listen to THIS.

That’s how I do it.  And yes, I are serious. 🙂

PS.  If you missed it two sentences up, (click THIS) Seth Godin explains, book by book, his thinking with each book.  If you are serious about becoming better, this will rock your thinking – especially if you are a traditionalist.
