Find Your Leverage

Everything in life comes easier if you can find a leverage point.

Archimedes once famously said, “Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.”

The same holds true for our own lives.

It’s not always obvious what we have to leverage. Especially when we’re just starting out.

We lack knowledge. And experience. And money. So we set out to learn, to work, and to earn.

Over time we accumulate resources. But the value of those resources are not always obvious.

It’s easy to comprehend the accumulation of wealth. We can quantify it. It’s divisible, and a medium of exchange.

But what of our knowledge and experience? These presumably hold value, too – at least, they must, because they’re the basis for our ability to earn.

Over time, our accumulated knowledge and experience appreciates in value. Except most people only tap into its potential through transactional exchanges of their time – a certain number of hours converted into a certain number of dollars.

Likely because it’s the easiest to quantify and exploit – our average, collective understanding of leverage tends to be limited to money.

So people gravitate toward accumulating money – and using leverage – to achieve financial freedom. But how much faster could you go if you made use of all forms of leverage – knowledge, experience, capital?

What if every new lesson you learned made you twice as productive?

What if you could figure out how to bottle and harness your knowledge and experience – without additional inputs of time or labor?
