What makes you tick? The things that make people work vary from person to person. However, there are three basic things that are essential to make everyone as productive as they want themselves to be: money, energy, and time.
If you have the energy, you can push yourself to become more productive in the world. If you have money, you have the liberty to push yourself to be better. And if you have the time, you can accomplish what you want and become unstoppable. You can do anything and be anything that you want.
If you are reading this, you are probably missing at least one of the three. What you don't have varies from day to day. Sometimes, within the day, it feels like you have run out of either of the three. It seems all three factors become scarce in the course of life, depending on how old you are.
You just got out of college and at the beginning of your career. You at the stage when you are trying to find out what you are passionate about.
You dream of pursuing your passion while hoping you could earn something from it too. You have a lot of time in your hands, so you decide to spend time with your friends. There are a lot of bonding moments and shared memories with those you care about.
With the energy and time in your hands, you begin to build habits that will help you succeed in life. The two most important things that you learn at this stage are these:
This means that you are beginning to count the numbers and look at investments you can make at a young age. You are also likely to spend a lot on things that do not really matter. You get easily tempted to spend more than you can afford, leading to a lot of unnecessary debt when you are older.
But then in your 30s, you begin to understand the value of money, and so you try to pay off all the debt you incurred. You start to save up for the future.
Your choice of activities and your food options play an important role in the kind of life that you have in the future. You have a lot of time, so you use it up to get a lot of sleep. In your 20s, you want to make sure that you are eating right and getting enough exercise.
While the goal may be to become a healthier you, this is the stage when you also want to be fit and fab to meet the love of your life.
Your career has taken off, and you have practically established yourself in your chosen field. You have enough in your savings that making ends meet is no longer a problem. While you may have enough resources, you also have enough knowledge not to spend it on things that do not matter in the future. You become more aware of your spending and make sure that it goes to good hands every time.
With the money and energy you have, all you could wish for is more time to enjoy what you have. As much as you'd like to travel, your responsibilities at home and in the office make you stay right where you are.
Can you imagine missing that tennis match with your friends because you are at the office currently managing the team or playing several workplace games? You cannot do everything that you want because you don't have the time.
But you can make all the things that you do count right. It's all about energy management.
You have the money and the time, but you no longer have the energy to do the things that you want.
Making good use of your energy is like making use of your time, but with a nice twist. What should you do with your time now? Instead of engaging in activities that use up a lot of energy, focus your attention on things that help you bring back energy.
For example, you can go back and teach yourself to eat healthy gain. You can exercise too. Maybe you can try to get more good sleep too. Those activities that you used to do in your 20s that help replenish the energy you lack at this time should be your priority.
The earlier you start investing in yourself and in activities that help grow your wealth, the more likely will you be able to retire early. This means that you have all three—money, time, and energy—to do the things that bring you pleasure.
While motivational activities may be good for you to help you find focus, it is important to also think of making early investments. Instead of waiting to reach your 40s before you put money in insurance or investment, it is best to start early.
Plan for the kind of future that you want to have. Think of the kind of life that you want to have. All the resources that you will have later in life will depend on how hard you work while you are younger.
Life's comfort will be all about what you did to prepare for the coming of old age. Money, time, and energy are all precious commodities. They may not mean a lot now, but they will surely affect you as the years come by.
The absence of one can make life even more challenging. But instead of getting disheartened, it should inspire you to do good, so that you can have a better future.
