#024: Leaving Your Potential On The Table

Apr 14, 2022

What would you do differently if your potential was your most valuable asset?

You’ve heard of leaving money on the table. That’s something that most people avoid.

Other than money, what other big assets do you NOT want to waste?  Time is a big one.  Everyone hates wasting time.

But what about your potential?  Is that valuable to you? Do you consider it an asset? 

Of course it is.  Going after your potential is the thing that helps you make more money, waste less time and ultimately become successful in whatever way you define success.

Your potential is actually higher-order to time and money.  Yet, I’d argue that we don’t treat it with the same care and concern. 

A lot of us are throwing it away.  Wasting it.  Deferring it. 

Perhaps it’s because we don’t see it as a tangible thing, although we all know it’s there.  We feel it.   Or perhaps it’s because we think it will always be there so we’re not losing anything by deferring until we have more time. 

Or maybe you think you already are going after it just by showing up for work every day. 

In this episode, we explore the question: what would you do differently if your potential was your most valuable asset? 

We’ll cover how you know you’re leaving your potential on the table and what small changes you can make to make more efficient use of this valuable resource.
