“The best solution to a problem is almost always the simplest solution” –
William of Occam
Leverage equals speed. You want to create wealth? You need lots of leverage.
It’s got to be objective ( your dream) – this advances humanity and adds value. I guess every dollar is an enlightened one.
It’s got to have a fulcrum (that’s you) – the object on which the lever hinges. Without you, no height in the lever and the dream will never move.
It’s got to have a lever. When the first two are in place, your success depends on the length and strength of the lever.
My friends, what am I saying? Speed is the new currency of business.
Archimedes said, “Give me a lever long enough and a plae to stand and I will move the entire earth”.
With leverage, you have the power to control a lot with just a little.
So what is leverage?
- Other people’s money [OPM]
- Other people’s efforts [OPE]
- Other people’s ideas [OPI]
- Other people’s time [OPT]
- Other people’s work [OPW]
Find yourself a mentor, a team, a network, an infinite network, tools and skills and a system. There is no synergy on your own, it takes at least two (2).
A network of relationships increases your leverage. Success is not a solo project.
