“Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus” – Alexander Graham Bells

As graduation loomed, I started to freak out. I became overly paranoid about the future.
Would a job be able to cover me for the rest of my life? – Obviously not.
How else can I increase my possible income?

I started to learn about investments and part time businesses. There were so many options, and it felt like there was no time. I end up signing up for many courses, way too many.

Having choices is a good thing, but trying to do all of them is definitely a BAD decision. I had to try to remember stuff that I read from one investment book, and at the same time, divert my attention to another investment vehicle. It was too much.

The lesson here is to focused. There are many ways to earning extra bucks. However, we should only focus on a few at the same time. Overstretching yourself only reduces your ability to learn and maximise whatever option you choose.

For anyone in the same position, DO find someone or somewhere (plenty of sources online) where you can get a general overview on the options available, DECIDE on only 1 (or 2) option and just FOCUS on mastering it.

As Robert Kiyosaki puts it, F.O.C.U.S = Follow One Course Until Successful.
