What is your ROTI?

Wondering what ROTI is? It is a term we coined during our MBA days, and one that I find increasingly useful and relevant to ask myself – especially to get answers from myself and to make decisions…

ROTI simply means Return on Time Invested

Time is the most precious asset which anyone has today. And time is “limited” in the physical sense (of course not in the metaphysical sense). And yet most of us are guilty of not making the best of the time that we’ve got..

However, it is important to use your time wisely and invest it wisely – at least for the things which matter to you.

And returns can be really anything which makes a difference in your life – happiness, peace of mind, health, wealth, relationships, balance, power, success, prosperity…

Given that it is almost the end of the year, it is especially useful to ask yourself the following questions:

What is your ROTI at work? Are you happy with this? Do you need to make any changes?

What is your ROTI at school? Are you happy with this? Do you need to make any changes?

  1. I don’t have any ROTI. The only rotis i have are for breakfast. I try to live now, in the present. My present is eternal. Whatever I do, I invest in the present, and the present is always there for me.

  2. I need to concentrate applying ROTI on those things that’ll guarantee me ‘Roti’ in the future :D
