The cause for higher effectiveness



Following an earlier post of "Tight For Time", following the birth of my daughter Olivia, I do find that much, much more of my time needs to be shifted to accommodate the care of her, which is non-negotiable to me.

It's not only a must, but it's at the same time, something I both want to do and actually enjoy doing; and I want to also help my amazing wife, who's an amazing mother and wife to me. By helping out more, I can provide temporary relief for her too.

All this leads to the necessity for me to increase my effectiveness as a person, business owner and investor, and I find myself culling more and more activities that are likely to be distractions and non-core, as I focus more and more on more-core activities.

Interestingly, results in business and life are still growing and have not stalled nor stagnated during this time, and I'm seeing points that I can be more focused on doing just the most core things and delegate or ignore the rest.

Before the birth of my children, I used to think shorter term, perhaps in the realm of 3-5 years, and in more simplicity. After the birth of my first daughter, I find myself thinking and visualizing up to 20 and 30 years ahead, to anticipate, plan and put things in place in advance of things that is potentially to come.

Which gives rise to me looking at investing for the long term as well as looking to build and buy more businesses that are evergreen, on top of building Urbanrehab to the next level and beyond.

Perhaps this is what fatherhood does to a man.


I. Like. It.
