It’s is not determined by the passage of time. It’s determined by the sweat equity we invest in that time. It’s a promise of commitment to a cause. A dedication to invest, work, design and add value.
Time causes decay and entropy unless we intervene. The passage of time is a predictor of decline, not growth. Invested money grows over time. This is only true because there are countless individuals labouring to increase the value of the underlying assets.
What we see when we look to the future is the result of hard work, not the passage of time. Future value is what you make it.
Keep your promise.
