Category: Brainpower & Skills

Welcome to The Brainpower & Skills category. This category consists of all the articles teaching you how to become more resourceful and competent. You are the investment with the highest potential yield in your life you will ever find, and that means you must regularly invest in yourself and your skills. The more you invest in yourself, the more rewards you can enjoy.

There is a simple reason why. With inner resources (knowledge, skills etc.), you can always create more outer resources (money, status etc.). And even if you lose your (outer) assets, you can always rebuild them with enough competences and knowledge.

If you believe in yourself, you will invest in yourself and then make sure that your investment pays off with proper market transactions.

There are two important ways to develop your inner resources. (1) The first way is to get the most out of your brain. That includes learning how to study properly, developing creative and analytical skills, and taking good care of your brain.

(2) The second way is to develop competences that are in short supply on the market and in high demand. You have to become dedicated to lifelong learning, constantly developing new skills, acquiring new knowledge, and improving yourself by finding new ways how to do things better. Blog posts under this category will teach you all that.

The creative society worships talented people, and blog posts below will teach you how to join the talented ones.
