Is a bird in your hand worth two in the bush?
Is a bird in your hand really worth two in the bush? Is it really better to hold onto something you already have than risk it all for a double? Did capitalism die? Why didn’t you keep your fast-food job instead of spending years and student loans for something better? Saving money for retirement is about laying out a bird now to get two or more out of the bush. Do you really want to be an associate dentist? When you decided to be a dentist back in grammar school did you envision yourself as an employee dentist or the dentist owner of your own dental office, land, and building? Associate dentists are paid just enough money to kill all off all their dental self-mastery dreams. Don’t settle for a sure bird in your hand today if you have already proven that you have the internal self-discipline of delayed gratification to invest it in yourself in the hopes that someday it will be worth two birds. Dentists know this or they would have invested eight years of their life and half a million dollars to get a dental degree.
