Do you spend money on THINGS, or do you spend your hard earned money on bettering YOURSELF? What percentage of money do you spend on your diet, exercise program, your learning/ education, or your relationships? What do you spend on meaningless brands, products, and entertainment?
This is the single most powerful investment we can ever make in life- investment in ourselves, in the only instrument we have with which to deal with life and to contribute. We are the instruments of our own performance, and to be effective, we need to recognize the importance of taking the time regularly to sharpen the saw in all four ways.” -Stephen Covey (pg.301)
