Seek, build, and grow leverage to extend your impact beyond a linear, hourly input-output.
If you can only earn with your own hourly time, the only way to build wealth is through incredibly deep specialization (white-collar defense lawyer, neurosurgeon, etc).
We live in an age of leverage thanks to more capital, cooperation, technology, and productivity.
You can now have an enormous impact on society without as much time or physical effort.
A person with leverage has the potential out-earn a non-leveraged person by a factor of 1,000 or 10,000.
In life, choose things in such a way that you add value to it, others add value, and ultimately it adds immense value back to you.
Make compounding a part of everything you do.
