Excellent post. I have only one question, and it is regarding personal priorities:
Where would you fit family time?
You wrote that you are no longer in a relationship, but if you have a family, you cannot ignore it.
Thanks Silvestar! Since I work remotely, I spend most of my time on the road. When I am home, I stay with my family, and when I'm not I make sure to stay in touch with them.
For me, family is definitely important and you'll notice a "Tier 2" commitment (see chart), although I could admittedly do better there.
I have a child that I have to raise, and I work remotely (but from a single location). That means I could only have one spot for personal improvement. Do you think that is enough to succeed?
I think so, if that is what you want!
I think the whole takeaway is that anyone can accomplish what they want, if they want it enough. It's okay if you don't want it enough and it's also okay if it takes time. The key is aligning your goals to your behaviours, and over time the compounding will be on your side.
Yeah, it takes time, I agree with you on that one.
Again, congratulations on the excellent article and thank you for sharing it and for answering the questions. I especially enjoyed the 1.01³⁶⁵ = 37.8 formula part.
Thanks so much! I agree - formulas are super powerful in demonstrating some of these concepts! 📈
