Here are some of Christer's favourite quotes.
“Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.” - Jim Rohn
If you work hard on your job you can make a living. If you work hard on yourself you can make a fortune. If you want to earn more money, you need to become more valuable. You don’t get paid by the hour, you get paid for the value you bring to that hour. The more you work on yourself the more value you can bring to that hour. That is how you become more valuable. That is how you make a fortune.
”Five years from today, you will be the same person that you are today, except for the books you read and the people you meet.” - Charlie Jones
What if that is true? And I believe it is. That might answer some of the questions to why we have not come any further in our lives. But that is the past five years. What about the next five years? If there is any truth to the quote above - then we can actually get an image of who and what we would like to become in the next five years, and then we can start to plan for what books we need to read and what people we need to spend more time with. Or even who we need to get to know, that we don’t know yet.
"Don’t prioritise your schedule. Schedule your priorities.” - Stephen R. Covey
It really is not about our schedules. It is all about having focus on our priorities. But if we do schedule our priorities then we should actually prioritise our schedule.
