“Love is minimalism. Desire, possession, and control are not minimalism.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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).”
“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.
This is an episode I plan on revisiting several times because it’s packed with so much insight. Using the link above you can download the podcast for free and listen to it wherever you want. I highly recommend checking it out.
That’s all for this week, thanks for reading 🙂
