Playing Catch Up
Financial pros often talk about compound interest. When they do, it’s usually in the context of financial gains.
Compound interest works just the same for losses, too. Spend a few days, weeks, or months falling behind, and the effect is compounded. Fall behind every day for a few years, and it’s hard to ever catch up.
Doing our best, most important work means not playing catch up. Rather, it means staying ahead.
