Life Simplified Concepts: Minimum Intellectual Threshold

Some people are born smart, some choose to become smarter later in life, and some achieve it because of necessity. No matter which one you see yourself as, be sure to invest in yourself intellectually. The pertinent question is not whether you should invest in yourself but how much should you invest, and the answer is relative to you and to your circumstance. Before you even understand the details of what this concept is, you should understand one important aspect of this skill. Your minimum intellectual threshold is not my minimum threshold. I don’t care how smart and intelligent you are, and you should not care about my—or any other person’s—intelligence either. The goal is for you to push yourself intellectually as much as your potential takes you, but once you reach your threshold, you need to settle with whatever level you have reached and be comfortable with the result.
