“You must realize that how you invest your human capital matters as much as how you invest your financial capital. Its rate of return determines your future options. Take a job for what it teaches you, not for what it pays.
Instead of a potential employer asking, ‘Where do you see yourself in 5 years?’ you’ll ask, ‘If I invest my mental assets with you for 5 years, how much will they appreciate? How much will my portfolio of career options grow?’ ” Stan Davis & Christopher Meyer, futureWEALTH
Stan & Chris seem to be saying that if our current work isn’t enhancing our resume, our value and our ability to get even better work….then we might be doing the wrong work….or at least not working on the right things.
