Sunday is for Sharing is a weekly roundup of my favorite articles, videos, and podcasts I read, viewed, and listened to over the past week.
This week features an article on how doing nothing can produce the best investment returns, an interview with Mr. Money Mustache on success and happiness, and much more. Enjoy!
My Favorite Video
“The story of a rodent’s unrelenting quest for happiness and fulfillment.”
This would be a humorous video if it didn’t hold so many underlying truths.

“When you hear rare stories about mom-and-pop investors letting their investments compound for decades, you are witnessing people making history by doing nothing.”

“When I was 21, a family friend told me I should go work at Procter & Gamble for 30 years, then I’d retire with a million dollars. I wanted to say, ‘That’s it? 30 years in a cubicle for a million bucks?’ But he was an Uncle, so I said, ‘Thank you for the advice’ while secretly thinking, ‘Are you insane?’ “

“The objective is to control your time — a non-renewable resource — and apply it where you have the highest leverage or enjoyment. For me right now, the Archimedes lever is clearly the podcast. I get to interview the most fascinating people I can find, including Rick Rubin, Jamie Foxx, Maria Popova, General McChrystal, Tony Robbins, and dozens of others. I would pay a small fortune to do this. Instead, I somehow get paid.”

“No matter how much money we have or don’t have, we can reject the idea that we can be Someone Who Matters to the World and instead embrace the idea that we must be Someone Who Matters to the Pack.”

“Getting to the top 5–10 percent merely requires a change in lifestyle. Getting to the top 1 percent requires a fundamental change in your being.”
My Favorite Podcast
In this brand new podcast from the team at Bigger Pockets, Pete from Mr. Money Mustache shares some insights on what he has found to bring real success and happiness in life. Pete is the guy who truly sparked the financial independence movement with his blog and I find it’s always worth listening to his thoughts on money and life. Definitely give this podcast episode a listen.
That’s all for this week, thanks for reading 🙂
