Always Get Ahead While You Can

Save money while you’re making money.

Build your defenses in times of peace.

Read ahead when you’re in the mood.

Continue creating while you are inspired.

Finish tomorrow’s work with time left today.

Getting ahead always opens doors otherwise unavailable, be they doors to relaxation, reward, health, personal projects, family time, or added productivity. No matter what you would squander the opportunity on, do the math—is there ever really a downside to getting ahead while you can?
