But hold that thought for a moment. This post isn&rsquo;t so much about the money you can make but about fixing the internal issues holding you from the 100x, which you won&rsquo;t be able to make&nbsp;otherwise.</p> <p>The <span class="caps">ROI</span> should be in the 100x range, if not&nbsp;1000x.</p> <h2 id="invest-in-your-physical-health-and-fitness">Invest in your physical health and fitness<a class="headerlink" href="#invest-in-your-physical-health-and-fitness" title="Permanent link">&para;</a></h2> <p>Eat proper food, and secure some time to exercise regularly. Even better, if you can afford it, consult a real-life fitness trainer, not some <span class="caps">IG</span>&nbsp;bozo.</p> <h2 id="invest-in-your-mental-health">Invest in your mental health<a class="headerlink" href="#invest-in-your-mental-health" title="Permanent link">&para;</a></h2> <p>Talk to a trained mental health professional. Find out if there&rsquo;s any childhood trauma, subconscious burden, or any mental illness you&rsquo;re carrying. Then, actively work on resolving it. There&rsquo;s no shame in having an issue, but it&rsquo;s not right to make the closed ones suffer because of&nbsp;it.</p> <h2 id="invest-in-continuous-education">Invest in continuous education<a class="headerlink" href="#invest-in-continuous-education" title="Permanent link">&para;</a></h2> <p>No, not talking about another degree or a certificate course. What I mean is about continuously educating yourself to be a better person, a true leader, a effective planner, and such. Learning can be done in many forms <span class="amp">&amp;</span> shapes. There are so many resources online or offline; free or paid; be it books, videos, podcasts, blogs, etc. you name it. Choose the one that fits your lifestyle and daily schedule.<br> Regardless of the medium, make an active habit of keep&nbsp;learning.</p> <h2 id="buy-time"><span class="dquo">&ldquo;</span>Buy&rdquo; time<a class="headerlink" href="#buy-time" title="Permanent link">&para;</a></h2> <p>This one sounds a bit edgy, right? I know. But, hold on for a moment. This investment is good to go after you have started taking care of the previous ones. Then, the next best thing is to &ldquo;buy&rdquo; more time for yourself. I mean, save your own time by delegating chore-like repetitive tasks to others who are willing to do it for less. Everyone isn&rsquo;t in the same financial position, and that&rsquo;s how it works. When considering something to buy, don&rsquo;t just consider it&rsquo;s upfront price; consider how much time you have to spend to make it usable. Now, re-invest the saved time in something more productive. When you have a lot of time to spare, you can do&nbsp;more.</p> <p>Be productive, be happy. Then, please share the happiness with&nbsp;others.</p>Porqué hacerlo, en vez de cómo hacerlo2020-05-26T00:00:00+06:002020-05-26T00:00:00+06:00Khaled Monsoortag:blog.kmonsoor.com,2020-05-26:/Porqué-hacerlo-en-vez-de-cómo-hacerlo/<p>Para establecer un proceso, a menudo nos vemos envueltos en los detalles del &ldquo;cómo&rdquo; mucho antes de lo que debería ser. Eso, a su vez, arruina el objetivo del proceso en&nbsp;sí.</p><p><em>[The <a href="https://blog.kmonsoor.com/process-emphasize-on-why-not-how/">original article</a> is in English. The article below is a professional&nbsp;translation]</em></p> <p>Para que la gente adopte cualquier proceso, la parte más importante de la &ldquo;difusión&rdquo; o &ldquo;venta&rdquo; es el porqué hacerlo, no el cómo hacerlo. Cuando la audiencia está lo suficientemente inspirada, estará dispuesta a aprender el proceso, a optimizarlo para que se ajuste al objetivo y, lo que es más importante, a hacer un esfuerzo adicional (más allá de lo que está escrito explícitamente) para lograr el objetivo o maximizar el&nbsp;impacto.</p> <p>Por eso la guerra de guerrillas funciona; incluso frente a un ejército formal masivamente desproporcionado. Porque un ejército formal dispone de conjuntos meticulosos de procesos, pero suele carecer de la parte de inspiración en los lugares&nbsp;adecuados.</p> <p>Como propietario de cualquier proceso, lo primero de todo es estar sólidamente inspirado. Si eso falta, todo lo demás se desmoronará; independientemente de cuántos consultores de gestión hayan trabajado en ello. Para asegurarse de ello, hágase la pregunta del porqué. Profundice lo suficiente como para contentarse con la respuesta. Entonces estarás listo para hacer y entregar la mejor versión de la parte del&nbsp;cómo.</p> <p>Si vas a delegar un proceso en otra persona para que se haga cargo de él, asegúrate de que esté satisfecha con la respuesta del porqué; no sólo que haya aceptado hacerse cargo. ¿Cómo lo sabe? Ella indagará en la parte del por qué y le preguntará al respecto. Estará lo suficientemente ansiosa por aprender la parte del cómo y ejecutarla en&nbsp;consecuencia.</p>What Is The Next Big2011-02-24T00:00:00+06:002011-02-24T00:00:00+06:00Khaled Monsoortag:blog.kmonsoor.com,2011-02-24:/what-is-the-next-big/<p>What is really big?
