I was at my favorite sub shop over the weekend grabbing a healthy snack. For those of you that aren't already familiar with Jimmy John's, they absolutely rock! The whole premise is that they get you your food fast. Don't get me wrong, I don't necessarily encourage folks to go Cookie Monster all over the plain subs there; the fitness professional in me wouldn't condone that. But earlier this summer, I discovered the UN-WICH! They take all of the great meats and fillings from their regular subs and throw it in a lettuce wrap. Now we're talking!
Anyway, I was waiting for my sub to come down the assembly line and I happened to notice one of the multitude of posters that they have with all kinds of advice and humor. They borrowed from Warren Buffet's "10 Ways to Get Rich". (You can read the full text here.)
While getting rich isn't necessarily the end-all, a lot of the stuff on the list is good, common sense advice.
1. Reinvest your Profits: It doesn't have to be money. If you gain some knowledge about yourself, your environment, or anything, apply it! Don't be satisfied with the status quo. Take your experience and use it to create a new plateau from which you can climb to the next level.
2. Be Willing to be Different: There's only one you. Relish your individuality. Keep being; keep learning; keep growing.
5. Watch Small Expenses: Whether it's time or money, the little details count. Why spend either unnecessarily only to not have enough for the things that matter later on?
10. Know What Success Really Means: He nails it on the head here.
