I recently read two things that gave me the idea for this post. The first one is a summary of Disrupt Yourself by Whitney L. Johnson. The second one is the autobiography of Ray Kroc, the man who built McDonald’s. Both of them taught me an important lesson: To move to the next level in life, you may need to disrupt yourself.
We can’t deny the fact that we need money. We need money to pay our bills. We also need it to advance in our lives (e.g. for education). But what is the right way to treat money? How can we live a meaningful life without money worries? I believe this quote by Jonathan Swift gives us a good answer:
I’m a curious person with a wide range of interests. I’m interested in computer programming, writing, personal development, and business. I’m also interested in a few other fields that I haven’t mentioned. A question that often arises in my mind is this: how should I manage these different interests?

Are you where you want to be in your personal and professional life? Do you know where you want to go from this point? And do you know that there are sacrifices you need to make to get there? No celebrated athlete, no world leader, no successful businessman or author, musician, or artist has “made it” without also making sacrifices – without giving up some parts of their former lives. One person may not have to give up what another will, but there are certain common sacrifices that we all must make if we intend to become winners in life. Here are five of those sacrifices.

In this article, I want to show you how you can do everything you’ve dreamt of doing. But the secret is – you can’t do everything at once. You have to prioritize, and focus on completing two or three things before you move on to other endeavors. In his TED talk, Scott Dinsmore talks about getting your priorities straight so that you can do the things you want with your life. Here are the steps:
