#122-1. Everyone who has achieved financial independence will tell you that -- at least in the early days -- you have to work smarter and harder. The price of success must be paid in full, and it must be paid in advance. There are no shortcuts.
#122-2. Most misfortunes are the results of misused time.
#122-3. Spend each moment perfecting the next, not correcting the last.
-Scott Michael Durski
We waste too much time complaining or feeling dejected about not achieving or getting something whereas we know that any effort and action in the form of hard work or smart work towards the desired goal would be a better use of our time.
Another mistake is to focus too much on the past, trying to make our past look or sound better whereas we need to orient our thoughts and analytical power on the future.
