I love having a long term, strategically minded brain. Most of the things that I have learned over the past 5 years have been things that I have looked at as strategically significant if they were applied over a lifetime.

I believe it is the exact same idea with personal development. Learning investing and dating at a young age only took me a few years each. I now have years for the investment to pay itself back.

For investing, I have been at it for around 4 years. At first it was a very expensive process. I was buying $300 or $400 worth of books every few weeks, in order to really immerse myself in the topic. I figured out that the two investment vehicles that had the most potential in my mind were precious metals and rental properties in Alberta. For the last 4 years I have been invested in precious metals, and having nothing to show for it. The price of silver is back where it was 4 years ago.
