“There’s no such thing as get rich quick. Building wealth takes time, and a lot of hard work. If you want to be successful in anything, you must work at it for hours every day – sometimes late into the night, and early in the morning. If you are happy with mediocrity, punch the clock after 8 hours, plop down in front of a television and waste valuable time until you fall asleep. Repeat this process until the weekends when you can do even more of the same.”
From Frugal Dad’s open letter telling his son how to be a good (and frugal) father, but you don’t need to be a man (or a dad) to take this advice to heart.
