Investing in Myself

Jul 28

There’s a great post on Daniel Jalkut’s Red Sweater blog called Invest In Yourself.

But many of life’s investments are risk free precisely because we don’t expect anything tangible in return. So be sure to spend at least some of your dollars and time on something more valuable and permanent than money. Education, artistic expression, good health, time with family & friends, travel, or pursuing your own particular favorite pastime.

Learning and mastering new skills is something I really enjoy. I do it mostly because it brings me pleasure, but I like the idea that I’m also making an investment in myself. I’m becoming a smarter, happier, and (hopefully) more interesting person by spending the time to learn something new. And I’m having fun doing it!
