If you seek tranquility, do less. Or (more accurately) do what’s essential. Do less, better. Because most of what we do or say is not essential
-- Marcus Aurelius
Lenders (and most others) struggle with a particular problem almost every day: how to prioritize deals they can get done versus those they can’t. Prioritization affects all of us, but how practically can we focus on what is essential? We are living beings and our most important asset is time, so let’s use it wisely. But how do we know if we are using it sensibly? Seneca similarly stated,
It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it
Granted, he was referencing our lives and not lending, but the lesson still applies. What is essential in lending? To be successful in lending one only to needs consider duration – safety – return and contingencies (perhaps a subset of safety).
