Stock in Talent

The 1st lesson finance students learn is time value of money: $1 today is worth more $1 tomorrow.  It's simple--if you have a dollar today, you can invest it and earn more than if you invest that same dollar tomorrow.  Sure there may be gains and losses along the way, but money is more valuable to you and me today than it will be tomorrow.I've often thought the same thing about talent.  Maybe it's that I was one of few people in business school who thought HR mattered (only later do investment bankers realize they need HR expertise too), but there's an important correlation here: your talent is worth more today than it will be tomorrow.
