40 Investments In 5-Minutes — Introduction
Sometimes, the simplest actions produce the greatest results.
All throughout the next two-months, we’re going to be exploring that idea.
You will, by reading this brief essay, learn about my new essay series — “40 Investments In 5-Minutes” — what, exactly, an “investment” is, and the types of investments we’ll be exploring.
For a general idea of what this essay series is going to explore, here’s a link to a related essay, the structure of which is nearly identical to this series.
So, What Is An Investment?
The dictionary definition of investment — Google’s dictionary, to be specific — is as follows: the action or process of investing money for profit or material result.
For this series, we’ll say that definition is pretty solid, except for one small thing.
You see, none of the investments in this essay pertain to money.
Rather, each investment pertains to a simple action — or brief set of actions — that produces immediate benefits right here and right now, as well as in the long-term.
Each one of these simple actions/sets of actions can be performed in just five-minutes.
All of these benefits involve qualities and traits that allow you to live a passionate, fulfilling, and abundant life that is, of course, aligned with your deepest needs and wants.
By engaging with the investments outlined in this series, you will have an easier time living the life you truly wish to desire, while also being able to explore new ways of thinking and being.
What Will We Be Covering In This Series?
Just as the name suggests, “40 Investments In 5-Minutes” is going to explore forty unique investments that you can perform in just five-minutes.
The act of performing these investments will bring forth a unique assortment of benefits.
Every investment will bring forth immediate benefits. But, along with that, every investment will also bring forth long-term benefits that may not become visible until some time has passed.
Some of the themes these investments cover are as follows: health and fitness, creating the life you desire, being happy, creativity and imagination; as well as a plethora of others.
Right now, the structure of these investments is, based on my early drafts, a little rough.
So, with that in mind, every single essay, which serves as an individual part of this series — there will be eight parts, in total, each one containing five investments — will outline investments that belong to multiple themes, rather than just one.
You might open “Part 3” and find investments that pertain to fitness and creativity. Or, you might open “Part 7” and find investments that explore creating the life you desire.
Regardless of what you find, though, my hope is that you’ll engage with the investments that inspire you and, in doing so, experience an abundance of lovely benefits and effects!
No matter the investment you engage with, please do so in the spirit of playful curiosity.
Everyone’s a little different, meaning the benefits each investment gives you may differ from the benefits that same investment has given me.
Please, let yourself be guided by this playful curiosity, so that you can find what works for you.
My promise to you is that, if you allow yourself to play with these investments, you will bring a plethora of great things into your life, while also learning a lot more about yourself.
Soon enough, “Part 01” of the “40 Investments In 5-Minutes” series will be published.
Soon after that, “Part 02”. And, then, “Part 03”.
And so on and so forth.
Thank you for joining me on this little journey.
I greatly appreciate you reading my work.
My hope is that the investments found in this series resonate with you and, most important of all, that they bring great things into your life.
