Education For All People – Education to Entertainment Ratio
Often the simple reason for not doing everything you have decided to do is because you do not have enough mind to do it.
This is a small test called Education versus Entertainment Ratio.
you need a piece of clean paper and something to write. From one side of the paper, you want to start listing the categories in the entertainment department of your life as you spend time and money.
You may not be aware of any of them as "entertainment", but be honest with yourself here, because not being honest will not help you achieve your highest dreams.
Everything you do, it's for your pleasure and "stop time", the relaxation time … goes on this list. Things like:
television, movies, computer games, cards, outdoor games, golf, basketball, baseball, football … you have the idea. If some of these things are the way you earn your living, you will obviously have to decide when it's "entertainment" and when it's just "having fun".
After making this list, put two things next … one, is the amount of time each day or each week you spend for each of these activities, and second, the amount of money, the if so, you spend on this activity.
Once you have finished the Entertainment side, flip the paper over and do the same for your Education list.
Personal growth, growth of business skills, seminars, CDs, DVDs, books, etc … and do the same with the amount of time spent and the space of money, if any, about your educational activities.
Add the time and money for each side of the paper and compare them now.
You will have two totals about time, and two totals for money.
The average entrepreneur who considers himself "prosperous" and who earns a lot of money in what he does spends about 3% of his monthly income on personal growth activities. Depending on what you do, you can understand that. Even large companies average this amount for training and education of employees / company executives. If you make $ 1,000 a week, then $ 30 a week for your education in your field of study and personal growth would be average. This could add up to $ 120-150 a month minimum for your promotion.
On the other side of the court is the entertainment list.
The average American spends up to 33% of his monthly income on entertainment activities … a little more, others less. It's more than 10 times the amount of their education.
There is no less that those who do less, spend more on entertainment, and those who do more spend less.
Those who have "learned" to make more money, spend more money to learn how to do more.
In fact, a study by the Harvard School of Business shows that those who actively seek to improve and improve their personal skills and business acumen double and in some cases triple their arrival every 3-5 years . While people who stop learning and work for pay never improve and never get increases, and always complain the most of the lack of opportunities in their current jobs. .
It is an easy conclusion of the observer mind, that the society of America, at least, has worked itself in poverty by putting too much emphasis on its entertainment compared to its education rate, leaving us in debt to our future.
The answer to changing your personal economy? Improve your personal skills, improve those you already have and invest in education. Make education an entertainment activity for you and you could see your income double, and even triple, every 3 to 5 years.
The biggest difference you will make during your working years will be the books you read and the people you meet. If you want to make a deep impact with your life you must be deeply affected by your life.
