“You can’t do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about its width and depth.” — H.L. Mencken

We’re cost focused.
Everything has a cost.
We even describe misses as costs.

The cost of doing nothing.
Opportunity cost.
Sunk costs.

Costs are hard.
Costs sit in the negatives column.

What if we flip that? Reframe our thinking.
All costs are an investment with potential for yield.

The cost of not starting may well be more than the cost of failure.

What will you invest in today?
