Does your wealth grow whilst you are sleeping ? If not you need to change your strategy as you cant work 24/7 365 days a year. Work smarter not harder !

When I started in the workforce in the mid 1990's as a lawyer the world was a very different place,

- every professional (even me) had a secretary
- we had a lady whose sole part time roles was to deliver biscuits and morning tea to staff at 10.30 am every day
we had a lady that polished and cleaned our phones every Thursday morning
-when we did a presentation we used clear plastic slides on an overhead projector
there were no computers on your desk only a pad and paper. Secretaries could only use computers in those days.
you needed permission from the Senior Partner to make a long distance phone call.
-there was no internet
-only professional staff were allowed at drinks, we stood in a circle and only the most senior lawyers spoke.
-The salary was $18,000 pa and my rent was $70 per week
The senior lawyers engaged clients with all afternoon lunches that in many instances turned into dinners as well.

The world has changed and if you are interested in finding out about what the "Industries of the Future" are, I would strong encourage you to read the NY Times best selling book by Alec Ross. Alec was the Head of Innovation at the White House during Barack Obama's Presidency. This is a book that could even change your life !

The New rules of business - what worked in the past wont necessarily work in the future. Remember if you do what you have always done you will get the results you always have.
