Are You Spending or Investing?


Recommended Posts


They say you can never step in the same river twice.

The water is always flowing.

The bottom is always moving, the banks are always shifting.

Even the "you" that is stepping in this metaphorical river is never the same.

Every time you breathe in and out, you are exchanging molecules of oxygen and carbon dioxide.

Every time you eat you are taking the protein from the food and using it to rebuild your body.

You might even go so far as to say you can't even think the same thought twice.

If you view part of you, the thinking part of you, which is always updating its database based on everything you're always perceiving around you, every time you think a thought, it's from a slightly different viewpoint.

Of course, if you do the same things every day, interact with the same people, those thoughts are going to be pretty much the same.

But what if you are continuously and PURPOSELY updating your frame of reference?

If you're walking a long a flat road, the scenery will only slowly change.

But if you're walking up a mountain, every time you stop and take a look, it will look VERY different.

The higher up you go, the more you'll be able to see.

You'll get a bigger picture of where you were ten minutes ago, vs where you were a couple of hours ago.

But if you're walking on a flat road, that difference (ten minutes vs. a couple of hours) won't even be noticeable.

The same goes with what you do on a daily basis.

How you spend your "free" time.

If you just "spend" time, instead of investing time, you won't see much of a difference.

But if you invest your time wisely, every time you stop and take a look where you've been (your present location vs. a year or so ago) it will look VERY different.

And this is the continuous forward momentum that can add up a HUGE difference over the course of your life.

Your mind is your most precious resource.

Do you spend time, or do you invest time?

Spending time is easy. Anybody can do it.

What will you do?
