Picking up a second language can lead to a salary increase of around 2%. It also opens up a range of new careers and could easily make a difference in a job interview. Apps like Duolingo and Memrise are free, fun, and provide a solid base for picking up an additional language. Admittedly, they can only take you so far. But it is still totally possible to achieve fluency for free if you hop on to something like Reddit’s Language Exchange and find a native speaker to help practice your skills.

When I think of all the time in my life I wasted do Quadrant 4 activities (i.e., not important and not urgent), I have an eternal regret.
If I had learned Chinese or Japanese, then how much easier would it have been to get ANOTHER job on Wall Street?
Don’t waste your time like I did. You only have so much!
