Short-term optimization doesn’t necessarily help in the Long term.
Here are the short-term and long-term versions:
#Good Salary level (Short term) doesn’t mean you can Build Wealth (Long term), it requires much more than that, the habit of saving, investments, and luck…
#Going to the gym today (Short term) doesn’t mean good health and longevity, it requires discipline and habit to build good health.
#Performing well in your job today (Short term) doesn’t mean a good career plan, as the job may become obsolete if you are not learning for the future i.e. for the long term.
Because of our short-sightedness to perform better in the short term, we miss the future and longer-term thoughts.
So don’t miss to think about the long term, give at least 10% of your time to long-term thoughts, dreams, and plans.
