In my post last week on the new net-worth, I challenged you to look at net-worth in a different way. I even went as far as to say your life depends on it (in so many ways).
An important thing to keep in-mind is the currency each of us is given in the following 8 areas. Call it life currency:
The currency is with you all of the time, if you haven't declared bankruptcy in any of the areas yet. The irony is you can invest this currency in any way you like. You can be foolish or wise, greedy or giving the choice is yours.
So what if you you awoke tomorrow and no one was interested in your career currency or your money currency? How would your fair? Could you find any currency in your family account or your physical account?
My words could fly in the face of what you hold dear (like your career or social). And in many facets, you won't get any encouragement from your investment house (as in the money variety) or family. You might get objections like "what about your retirement" or "how are you going to support your wife and kids?" Hopefully, you noticed that I've never advocated you ignore those. I am asking you to do just the opposite.
Pay close attention to each of the 8 areas.
The idea here is to adopt integration-every day. Starting small and moving to the big and great.
