Steve Pavlina on Investing

Steve Pavlina wrote a very insightful post about resourcefulness today. This passage particularly struck me:

In today’s uncertain economy, people are trying to figure out where to hold their resources/wealth. Should you invest in oil, gold, foreign currency, etc.

Honestly, the best place to invest is yourself. Turn your assets into internal knowledge and skills. If you want to invest in some entity, consider investing in one that helps people invest in themselves. When resources get scarce, it’s time to pump more energy into the internal side, such as by investing in education and training for yourself and others. That will produce far more benefit than owning shiny metal.

Now is the perfect time invest in your knowledge and skills. Start today by picking up a great book.
