My Favorite Video
I always tell people Microsoft Excel is underrated for making visualizations. This man proves my point. He creates paintings using the software. Mind = blown.

How Minimalism Brought Me Freedom and Joy

“Love is minimalism. Desire, possession, and control are not minimalism.”
You Don’t Understand Bitcoin Because You Think Money is Real
via Maria Bustillos
“U.S. dollars are not backed by anything other than the faith of the fools who accept it as payment and of other fools who agree in turn to accept it as payment from them. The main difference is that, for the moment at least, the illusion, in the case of dollars, is more widely and more fiercely believed.”
Your Salary Is Not The Limit Of Your Income.
via Jon Westenberg
“You won’t make the kind of money that can set you up for life and let you design your own lifestyle if your sole source of income is the salary paid to you by your boss.”
The Case for Spending $100 on a Haircut (Or, Anything Really)
via Tiny Ambitions
“Will it cost you extra to take care/service the item? Does the item have added value beyond its price tag? Does the item/product/service add something extra to your life? Does it make your life easier?
Your answer to any of these questions will help you determine if something is worth the price you will have to pay for it (no matter what the price tag is).”
I’ve Stopped Wishing My Life Away
“Much of the population is too focused on living for now. Just have a look at current personal debt levels and that is clear.
I was too focused on living for later.”
My Favorite Podcast

This is arguably the best podcast episode I have listened to in 2017. Naval Ravikant is the CEO of AngelList and one of the most successful startup investors of all time. In this episode, he covers investing, reading, happiness, habits, and much more.

That’s all for this week, thanks for reading 🙂

That Excel painting is amazing… what a unique talent! Haha- now I want to go give it a try, I could spend HOURS playing around with Excel!
I know, right!? It also inspired me to make cooler visualizations in Excel now that I know what’s possible haha.
Great roundup as always, I downloaded that podcast to listen to sometime soon!
Thanks, Matt! Hope you enjoy the podcast!
