We are in a world where physical labor is generally less valued compared to what you know. It’s been said you will be the exact same person in five years with the exception of the books you read and the people you meet. Thankfully, “the books you read” is easily transferred to the websites, podcasts, audio, video, or other media that you consume that expands your vision, world view, understanding, knowledge, and/or abilities.
There are two negative actions you can take that generallca will not help you be the best you you can be in this area:
– don’t work on growing
– fill your mind with crap
We all have a limited amount of time and energy, luckily we can work and generate more energy, yet we cannot do anything to increase our time.
How this effects other areas is not as clear cut as the physical and some other areas. It also depends more on other areas.
If you never grow mentally:
- your production will be stagnant
- your personal finances will reduce relative to the rest of the world
- you will have less to relate to with people in the future
- you will not have the best techniques in your toolkit to improve physically or spiritually
Now if you just fill your head with crap, and I am not downplaying the need to entertainment, or relaxation, the issue come in with a reduced amount of time for development in the seven areas, or ability since your only have a set amount of ram in your head. It makes mental growth harder and less likely to happen.
