Hi Torsten and learners,
I totally agree with you about “The Law of increasing returns”, it’s so natural and applies to everyone no matter what colour you are, but it’s easier said than done. Obviously I had started learning typing, after one month I was bored and stopped it, then put off many times. It’s possible that I invested my time too much in reading magazines and Alan’s essays which were enjoyable and also got many returns. Anyhow I’ll try it again, even if it’s my third attempt, because I believe in you. everything seems to be so difficult when you get a start at the entire of life. I remember when I learned Thai Typing at age 20, it wasn’t difficult like this, although Thai language has a 44 letter alphabet. I type supper fast in Thai.
In my mind it’s never too old to learn, isn’t it?
I would like to share my experience about “The law of increasing returns”. Last year I invested my time planting a papaya tree in my backyard, which I got from seedling which cost me nothing. Guess what! after 18 months I’ve got about 60 papayas on the tree. I had to give to my intimate friends and my neighbours. Beside, my neighbours gave me some banana cake and my friends gave me some vegetables which they produced from their garden next day. I’m pretty sure that “the law of increasing returns” is working for me.
