For too much time, I have been looking after something which I can hold up for a whole life. It's hard for me and also for everyone else. But life-long things are very important. Taking the job career for an example, most of the people changes their jobs several times in the whole career life, but only a few could achieve a so-called success. The same characteristic among these success is that they do a job for a very time and sometimes a whole life. The more times you change your job, the less chance that you can success.
And there is another reason that I am looking after life-long things. I have been thinking for several years that what should I do after I am retired, although I am less than 40 right now. I do not want to be bored for nothing to do, and I also do not prefer to restart something in the retirement. If there is a thing, or a few, that I can do for a whole life with hope, that would be a wonderful thing itself.
So, here I list several life-long things I've found:
You need to pay more and more attention to your health as the year goes on. Everything else is based on your health. You should have a regular body-practice plan as soon as possible and this plan also needs to be life-long period. I have a dream about death which is to die in a health.
You can not be an athlete when you grow older enough, but you can always, if you have enough money, to invest things and projects even if you can not walk. Investment is a life-long game which should be token very carefully. If you want to achieve a big success in investment area, you need start your invest plan as soon as possible. The most powerful thing in investment is called compound interest.
Website is the very basic element in the Internet era. For some reason, I build this website and finally I find that this website is also a life-long project for me. I create a virtual space for myself and I have fun in here. It maybe not profitable but at least meaningful.
4, Reading and Learning.
I want to live long but not long without my sense. I hope I can keep my intelligence while I am above 80. The most success people above 80 in this planet are always keeping their mind open to learning as much as they can. I believe the life-long reading and learning is the key to make yourself happy and intelligent everyday. So, it's time to make a reading and learning plan for you life.
Those are 4 things I've found for my whole life.
What are yours?
