In the movie Wild, Reese Witherspoon puts on her monster backpack for the first time and almost collapses under its weight. Few of us can forge ahead under that kind of burden, but many of us are trying to do so in our efforts to create wealth. This is why so many of our wealth-building efforts—whether it’s to earn more, weigh less, or get out of debt–die at the trailhead.
In today’s show, we’re going to talk about a systems and engineering concept called the critical path. We’ll go over what it is, how to get on it, and how to stay on it. Our brains resist the idea of getting from point A to point B in an efficient manner, and that’s a shame because operating inefficiently burns our time, money, and effort. This is not the way to create wealth. So in this episode, we’ll also discuss common reasons why we resist the critical path, and what you can do to get out from under those problems.
If you want to create wealth in the most efficient manner, so you can enjoy it rather than worry about how to get it, this episode is for you.
