Skill

Don’t judge people by what they can’t do but what they can do.

You cannot always find a ‘know-it-all’ but you can always build one.

There is a difference between having an ability and having a potential.

Ability is like a dish.It’s already prepared.You can improve it by adding more things to it,but the foundation will remain the same.

Potential is like raw ingredients.You can create something never seen before.Making a unique beginning may lead to an unexpected end.

It’s all about a balance of time and effort.No matter how much effort you put in,if you don’t have the time to create,you are likely to fail.

Circle

Saving your money doesn’t make you rich.Investing it does.Because the saved-up money will be used-up one day,but invested money will keep growing (with slight fluctuations of course).You only come across savings when you have done some sort of investing in the first place,right?

In the same way:

Saving your time doesn’t make you rich in terms of quality of life.Investing that time to inculcate new skills and experiences does.Because the saved-up time will be used-up one day,but the invested time will keep-up your growth.You have the luxury of idle time only when you have already done some sort of investment prior to it to save time in the future,right?

Believe

Don’t think twice.You already invested a lot of time when you were thinking the first time.The second time will just exhaust your mental faculty and make yourself doubt you.Not to say you don’t need to proofread.And not to say haste cannot be a waste.If you made a decision first time with every resource available,then that was the best decision.Our resources keep on improving so it may feel like you made a wrong decision when in fact you made the best decisions under the given situation.It’s the doubt in you that kills future creativity.Doubt things around you to update your thinking.

Invest

To become successful you need to do two things: (a) have an idea and (b) act on it.You can’t have success unless you have an idea to materialize.And you can’t have success unless you materialize your idea.

Both idea and action come at a cost.But the costs differ.Idea comes at a cost of experience.Action comes at the cost of money.You may take the risk and pay the cost.Or you may wait a while for the cost to change in your favor.

But both of them also come at the cost of time.A cost that is due on all of us.If time is a cost we are all eventually going to pay,might as well make the best out of it.
