The Productivity Paradox

Thursday, 7th March 2013

Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.

Abraham Lincoln


Work hard on your job and you'll make a living. Work hard on yourself and you'll make a fortune.

Jim Rohn

Out of the 8 hours, if you work 3 hours every day on yourself and the remaining 5 hours on the work your employer gives you, you'll get more done for both yourself and your employer.

Slowly, over a year or two, reverse those numbers. If you work 5 hours of the 8 hours every day on improving yourself, and only the remaining 3 for your employer, you will do still more for both.

You'll end up doing more for your employer if you do less for your employer and more for yourself everyday.
