The Price of Important Information

More than a year ago, I got a job that was really far from my place of residence. 

I had to board car three different times in order to get to the office.

And worse, the journey to the office alone cost ¢30.

In total, I had to spend about ¢50 on a daily basis only on transportation.

It was crazy. I was really pained.

I decided I’d not settle on this huge cost and started to seek information regarding my journey to work.

A colleague named Emilia was really instrumental in showing me several possible shortcuts. In the end, my cost reduced from ¢30 to ¢9 and from ¢50 in total to less than ¢20.

The Lesson

What you may not realize in life is that information usually comes with a price tag.

The information I got from Emilia was worth ¢30 (that is, ¢50-¢20) a day. Just sum that up for a month and then a year.

Information on godliness, family planning, discovering your purpose, understanding the Grace of God, financial freedom, and the like can save you from so many troubles and costs in your lifetime.

That’s why you should always seek knowledge.

When I read The Lean Startup by Eric Ries , I knew I’d stopped myself from ignorantly wasting millions on my future businesses.

When I discovered the truths I outlined in Reformed Or Deformed, I knew I’d be well-positioned for progress after university.

When I learned the vital principles I packed in Cheers and Tears of After-School Life, I knew I’d be fulfilled in life and my future would be bright and meaningful.

So my question to you is this:

What have you learned?

…because the more we learn, the more we earn.
