What is your personal R&D budget?
It’s no coincidence that Google, Samsung, Toyota, and several other companies that are leaders in their industry also have the largest R&D budgets.
What do they know at a company level that you should know on an individual level?
They know that spending a portion of their resources, think time and money, towards researching and developing new ideas and products is a key to their success.
Since you are your own product, do you have a plan on how you will improve yourself or do you leave it to chance?
How much of your time and money do you intentionally spend on improving yourself?
Do you think improvement will happen by accident?
You can rapidly improve your health, relationships or any other area of your life in a relatively short amount of time if you make a concerted effort.
Perhaps you don’t give it the formal term of R&D, but you should seriously consider allocating a portion of your own resources to improving whatever area of life is important to you.
