GET AHEAD

A Little More, A Little Earlier

TIME IS LIFE

Take advantage of time

THE PHILOSOPHY OF EFFORT

 

Forget any master plan that they try to sell you to get rich overnight and, of course, stay away from the promise of get-rich-quick schemes.

FOCUS AND DELAY THE REWARD

Try to resist this impulsive temptation that burns you inside and “demands” from you to provide, at once, what it wants. If you can hold that craving for the instant reward and forget the itch you can achieve greater goals in the medium and long term. Basically, DELAYING GRATIFICATION means […]
