Wise: Procrastinators

I’ve been writing a lot more articles in the past few weeks. I usually post one new article a week. 

But last week and this week, I published two. And I will do the same next week.

The reason I upped my output is that I felt like I was procrastinating a bit more than usual. So instead of taking a step back, I recognized I needed to challenge myself more.

This week’s Wise article is one of my favorite ones. 

It’s about two words: Regret and accomplishment.

If you overcome procrastination, you avoid regret and you will feel a sense of accomplishment.

Two priceless things in life. More on this in the article.

Wealthy: Strategic opportunism

My next book, The Stoic Path to Wealth, was supposed to come out in February 2024

But the publishing date was pushed back to July 2024 recently. I had already started with the marketing strategy for the book.

When I heard about the changed publishing date, I had to adjust quickly.

I immediately started creating a new strategy and I began recording the audiobook version of my third book, Do It Today.

I finished recording the entire audiobook, 33 chapters in total, in a week.

Plus, I’m working on more improvements for my online courses. And the beginning touches on a new book!

So this change in the publishing date has turned out great for my productivity.

Thanks to “strategic opportunism,” something that can help you to accomplish more in life.

One interesting thing

A very strong statement from the renowned business philosopher, Peter F. Drucker:

“Until we can manage time, we can manage nothing else.” 

Being in control of your time and focus is fundamental to achieving success in any area of life. I consider it the foundation of all achievement.

It’s much like juggling: Each ball represents a different aspect of your life – work, family, health, personal growth. Drop one, and the rest could follow suit.

Thanks for reading! I hope you found this edition of Wise & Wealthy useful.

All the best,

Most people try to calculate their way out of poor finances. But money problems aren’t rational. They’re emotional. Manage your emotions well, and you’ll manage your finances better.
