Do yourself a favour and measure yourself on the following fundamental investment ratio’s, which we all unconsciously consider or calculate on a daily basis but we seldom/never realise the significance of this and seldom/never put this into perspective:
ROI = Return on investment (Is anything that you invest in; business, equipment, staff, etc. yielding any positive returns? Do you see value for money?)
ROE = Return on Effort (Are your efforts fruitless or fruitful?)
ROT = Return on Time (Are the countless hours at the office paying off, while you become a stranger to your family?)
