When it’s time for work, what do you find yourself gravitating towards?

Stuff that’s fun, easy, makes you feel good, and takes your mind off your challenges?

2:17 Today’s Topic: Tension-Relieving Vs. Goal-Achieving

2:40 Gary Becker says that the bottom 80% of income earners in America on average increase their income 3% a year, which is equal to the rate of inflation

3:26 The top 20% however increase their income by 11 % per year, which allows them to double their income every 6-7 years

3:52 Pareto’s principle – the 80/20 rule

4:10 Point I: The bottom 80% of people rarely expand themselves in any way, shape, or form

5:16 What the bottom 80% spend their time doing outside any required activities are tension relieving activities

7:40 Everybody has 8 hours of discretionary hours a day apart from sleep and work – what investments do you make on those times?

8:27 Point II: The top 20% of producers are always expanding, improving, learning, and adapting

10:46 Change brings tension

11:07 Expanding, improving, learning, and adapting are not easy, but they are goal achieving activities

14:09 Point III: Albert Einstein gave the exact same test to the same students two years in a row because answers change – the things we believe to be true 2 weeks ago may not be true today

16:28 If you are not expanding your mind, times are going to pass you by, even if what you’re doing is perfect before
