Well, I just had a thought on short term and long term money and wondered it was worth sharing. Now when you start in a new INDUSTRY, your start-up or your service like a consulting service … your main focus always, in the beginning, remains at short term money or I can say quick cash. You don’t think about the long term and what happens if you are just left with something which is not sustainable.
You won’t have long term clients, you will have money in the beginning but it will disappear like water in the lake in summer…Slowly and unnoticeable.
In the start, you will decide that you will invest quick made cash for something sustainable and expand but when you make that quick cash you will just keep it with your self and think that what if I invest it and lose all of it. I have been there and you will be too. When you stand there, you can do two things.
Start again from the beginning or just keep doing the quick cash thing. But remember it won’t be sustainable. I did it and now I regret that I just wasted my time with it and haven’t achieved something sustainable. So what am I doing now? Just taking a break and developing something in me which will be sustainable and long term.
One thing I just did is thrown all the self-help books because I think its all the same thing in all the book. No doubts that self-help books are important but what if you can implement it? So that’s the case. I am trying to improve my general knowledge nowadays so that I can develop a critical speaking style. We should at least know 4 times more about a topic we are gonna speak and write about so we have a handful of stories to elaborate our points and throw out our opinion clearly which can influence others.
