The story of the Lion & the Field Mouse (The secret of the world’s most productive people)

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?
