The 73 year old ultra successful billionaire investor and founder of the Carlyle Group, David Rubenstein, had the following to say when asked about what kind of projects he takes on or spends time on.
- Work on starting things that others aren’t able to start.
- Work on finishing things that others aren’t able to finish.
- Wherever possible, attempt to make tangible progress, rather than something that might or might not happen in a distant future.
- Give your time to your projects of choice, in addition to giving your money.
Isn’t this very instructive and insightful on how we each could look to prioritize our own times as well?
