1. “Making money is not a thing you do- it’s a skill you learn.”
We only have so many hours in a day. Imagine if we could find ways to make money without having to give up all our precious time.
Many people do this. It’s possible to make money from advertising on a blog/ youtube channel, sell a virtual product, invest money into funds etc.
I believe if we can find more ways to make money without sacrificing more time we’ll have more freedom.
2. “Specific knowledge is found by pursuing your genuine curiosity and passion rather than whatever is hot right now.”
If we focus on what we think we should be focusing on ( maybe whatever is popular etc) rather than what we’re interested in, we won’t get as far.
Genuine curiosity can take us places where boredom and disinterest can’t. We’re much more likely to get better in an area / build specific knowledge in a subject if we’re genuinely interested in it.
3. “The most important skill for becoming rich is becoming a perpetual learner”
The more we know, the more we can do, and the more we can do the more opportunities we have in life to succeed.
One amazing thing about books that no one speaks about is that you can literally get insider knowledge from some of the most iconic and successful people in history, past and present.
I try to read 30 minutes to 1 hour per day, I mostly read genres that I’m curious about and have a genuine interest in.
