Copied the following from an article I read online in order to discuss it all together.
I 've been asking myself for the past few weeks "how many tasks did I get done today". It's new to me to think about value vs amount of tasks I completed, and I see that sometimes I struggle to form this new way of thinking.
“The money you make is a symbol of the value you create.”
― Idowu Koyenikan, Wealth for All
When you ask a poor person if they’ve been productive today, their response is in terms of hours worked. “I worked for 7 hours at work today.” “I spent 3 hours on this project.” “I spent like 2 hours cleaning the house today.”
When you ask a rich person if they’ve been productive today, their response is in terms of value-added. “I shipped a final product today.” “I’ve cleaned the entire house.”
That’s because poor people are paid in terms of hours worked and rich people are paid in terms of value-added.
Poor people get hourly jobs. Rich people get salaries. The richest people get equity, and then they get paid based on the success or failure of a business venture.
The richer you get, the less your hours worked matters.
To do what rich people do, stop thinking in terms of hours worked. Start assessing your own productivity based on how much you get done. As your priorities shift, you’ll start getting more done per hour.
