“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” – St. Francis of Assisi
Step by step, eat an elephant one bite at a time, day by day, etc. The metaphor does not matter but the message does. We know that compounding is a powerful way to grow your money, but have you ever applied that same process to the compounding of working on yourself or your business? What would pay greater rewards: compounding money or the result of compounding effort? I guess the answer to that question is yours to answer.
All I know is you can’t take your wealth with you. As a mentor once told me, “A life well lived is one that is lived with intention and deliberate development of self in the physical, spiritual and mental realms. It is the hardest work you will ever do.”
I don’t write any of this to be preachy. When I saw this quote, it triggered some thoughts and memories. If it benefits you in some way or gives you cause for thought, then fantastic. If not, then thank you for reading and with any luck I’ll catch your attention next week.
Walk with grace, a light heart and an eye on the bright horizon.
