When you hear the term Protect the Asset, what do you think? Security systems? Insurance? Wealth Management? Form an LLC?

I suggest to you, fellow professional, that it is all in your head. More specifically, your brain. Your brain will make you millions of dollars over the course of your career. It is by far your most valuable asset by far.

So how does one protect this asset? Here are some important ways:

  • Get eight hours of sleep
  • Eat right (think proteins and vegetables)
  • Exercise
  • Minimize stress (do fewer, especially unimportant, things)
  • Healthy relationships
  • A sense of purpose and belonging
  • Meditation and reflection
  • A creative outlet
  • Recreation
  • Socializing

Of this list, which one are you most deficient in?

Then do something about that one thing.
