Never Losing Twice
They Key to a Simple, Successful Life
Don’t eat food that makes you hungrier, don’t buy things that make your life more complicated and don’t hire employees who add more problems to your company than they solve.
I’ve spoken at length with Tyler Todt about always looking for ways to win twice, but this is the equally important yet opposite principle - always avoiding areas where you’ll lose twice. Avoiding areas where you pay for something and get negative value in return. Areas where you’ve added energy to your body yet it just makes your body crave more.
There are delicious foods that fill us up (animal products) and there are delicious foods that make us hungrier (sugar.) And there are things we can do with our money that simplifies our life (buying time back) and there are things we can buy that result in headaches (nice cars and status games). There are employees we can hire who save us stress and those we hire who only seem to add to it.
All of this may seem obvious when I explain it like this. But let me ask you: how would your life be different if you avoided spending money in areas that gave you more headaches? You’d probably have more money and fewer headaches. So if you aren’t already doing this, my question to you is why?
