I hope you’re enjoying the wind down to Christmas – and connecting with family and friends for festivities.
Here’s some wisdom, from a very successful US politician Newt Gingrich, that could help you get inspiring results in all areas of your life.
The Lion and the Field Mouse
A lion is fully capable of capturing and killing a field mouse.
But the energy required to do so exceeds the caloric content of the mouse itself.
So a lion that spent its days hunting field mice…would be a skinny…and soon to be dead Lion!
That’s why a Lion needs to hunt antelope. Antelope are big animals.
And of course, they take more speed and strength to capture.
But once killed, they provide a much bigger meal for the Lion and her family.
A lion can live a long and happy life on Antelope.
The distinction is important.
It’s about how you spend the precious days of your life – in your wealth creation, your career and recreation time.
It’s a good question to ask at the end of the day – even on your holidays!
Did I spend the day, chasing Antelope or Field mice?
