Acumen and accruing. Two words that share a few letters, and yet are miles apart in every other sense.
Acumen means you have something of use; accruing means you’re in the process of gathering stuff that isn’t necessarily useful.
Acumen means you connect the dots between idea, execution and success; accruing means you’re more concerned with collecting the dots as opposed to connecting them.
Acumen means you know your shit; accruing means you think anything below a certain number is shit.
In other words, someone with acumen will always – ALWAYS – beat someone that prefers accruing.
Because the numbers that come as a result of acumen far outstrip any importance that the simple act of accruing numbers offers.
Something to keep in mind when you next want results in anything you do…
