First of all, what is an Investment?

An investment is an asset or item acquired with the goal of generating income or appreciation. In an economic sense, an investment is the purchase of goods that are not consumed today but are used in the future to create wealth. In finance, an investment is a monetary asset purchased with the idea that the asset will provide income in the future or will later be sold at a higher price for a profit.

Simply put as - you buy something which is undervalued and time comes it becomes expensive, or just like gold, it was just simply a dense rock which are now expensive because it is hard to get (where there is now value).

Question is, does Investment should be really in terms of good/assests/items? You could say that, but what if you Invest on knowledge or hone your skills?

Invest in Learning something Different

Now, I would like to share my thoughts about investing something which I dont know it could be profitable someday in the future. Im investing our money and time to skills which is playing Piano.

Now because its almost New Year, there would be a lot of tweets, posts, blogs about their new year's resolution. Is it a good investment to learn more new things rather than money? What are your thoughts about this?

My thoughts are: It could be a good investment, as long as you are passionate and willing to do so. If you have a heart on doing this and that. Which therefore we might able to say, there are still risks am I right? The risk is when you are afraid of getting failure, and getting all of those criticism. When in fact, the purpose of those risks you took leads to growth not in your skills but also in your Character.

What am I saying?

Lol, Im being pointless here anyways. All Im saying that is, for now. Im gonna spend my time (next year) to learn something different like playing piano. Im not gonna spend time on learning how the cryptography works now, atleast for now - maybe because of the depression from the BTC price and the STEEM price, who cares anyway. For sure SMTs will be delayed because of the employee cutoffs.

Until next Blog! Ciao!
