Practical Advice On How To Use Time Efficiently

How I Used To Always Feel

Below is a brief transcribed excerpt from today’s video – Practical Advice On How To Use Time Efficiently.

In the video below I expound on what I talked about in the Do More, Fail, More, Improve Faster video that I released in May.

Hey everybody Jason Rivera here from valueinvestingjourney.com, author of How To Value Invest, and chairman, CEO, and founder of Rivera Holdings LLC.

In the last video – Do More, Fail More, Improve Faster – I talked to you about, rather I was inspired by Gary Vaynerchuk.  In his video he talked about the need to do actual things…

Stop reading, stop learning, stop thinking, stop brainstorming and just go out and do stuff as much as you can.

Fail, learn, fail, learn, fail, learn, fail and learn as much as possible.

And I brought my thoughts into it in the Do More, Fail More, Improve Faster video.

But I didn’t really tell you anything practically…

I just said yes that was what you should be doing and that’s how I learn faster and that’s how I improve faster.

But I didn’t tell you anything practical and I hate when people do that.

That’s one of the reasons I wrote How To Value Invest because I was tired of seeing all these websites and books and stuff talking about value investing and finance telling you how you needed to learn how to value companies… But nobody ever tells you how.

Or they tell you need to evaluate companies on a deep level but they never tell you how.

That’s one of the main reasons I wrote How To Value Invest to show everyone how to do these kinds of things.

So today I’m going to give you a little bit of practical advice about stuff that helps me learn faster and become more efficient and productive with my time.

Just like everybody out there I have kids, I have a wife, I have family commitments, doctor appointments, car appointments, stuff like that so I try to make the most of my time.

And due to my health issues in the past there were many days where I could literally do nothing except learn 30 minutes of the day…

Absolutely Amazing Testimonial For My Book and Weekend Reading Links

I just wanted to share an absolutely amazing testimonial that a reader emailed me recently about my book that literally brought tears to my eyes.  Thank you so much to this reader and to everyone else who has bought or read my book, left a testimonial or review, or read this blog.

“I knew all the terms and read all the books but when it came to actually reading an annual report and getting something out of it I was lost. What your book did for me was offer concrete examples of how to find the information in an annual report that will allow an investor to make a conservative estimation of the true value of a company. Not only did it explain value matrices and why they are important and how they should be applied; but how an investor can find the inputs for these calculations in the annual report. For me that was a real eye opener. I would not change your book. I think it is the perfect starting point for someone who wants to start digging deeper into valuing businesses. It is a simple read and the cases and techniques used in each case are well explained. It does not overload the reader with either high theory or esoteric math. I think it does just enough to explain mind set when value investing and how to “discover” the value of a business.  So I would not change your book; it provides a great starting point for someone interested in valuing businesses.” Testimonial that a reader sent to my email.
