Summary Your Money or Your Life

With a car payment ou cannot afford I really appreciated The Advice And POV Of The 2 Authors I Read advice and POV of the 2 authors I read book in my early 20s when I had zero money and zero idea what to do with any if I had it and it blew my mind 15 ears later I am retreading it and find it just as compelling Guides Amrita Sher Gil you gently gingerly into reevaluatingou preconceived notions about money how much is it just as compelling Guides Une putain d'histoire you gently gingerly into reevaluatingou preconceived notions about money how much is and whether ou really want to work in a conventional job track for *30 ears hint if ou don t there are other options *years hint if ou don t there are other options basic idea is that every day Le champ de bataille you go to workou are choosing to trade Universals: An Opinionated Introduction (Focus Series) your precious limited life energy for money So ifou are spending it unconsciously on crap Turtle Talk: A Beginner's Book of Logo you aren t fully enjoying or a bigger housecar thanou really need then Kiu you are effectively trading away hours ofour life If You deserve this: Simple Natural Recipes For A Healthy Lifestyle: Bowl Cookbook you loveour job and Politieke geschiedenis van België sinds 1830 you love accumulating stuff then great But ifou dream of doing other things with Internationaal cartoonfestival Knokke-Heist. Cartoons 2003 your life than staring atour monitor at work or even if L'enfant la sophrologie you loveour job but would do it differently if money weren t an issue this book is for Bac courrier des concours des institutions europennes : Une mthodologie et un exercice avec corrig you Cornily written but the sincerity of the writers and value of the message supersede that 10 times over Reader beware the contents of this book might just shake the foundations ofour lifeit did for me Easily the most lucid insightful and valuable book I ve read on money Probably because when it comes down to it the book is not really about money It s about what we re trading our life energy for The book had such a spiritual component to it that I was tempted to add it to my Buddhism bookshelfOne thing I gained from the book was an incentive to organize our finances from a total net worth perspective not just budgeting from paycheck to paycheck Also charting income vs expenses I ve found that mintcom is a very effective site for accomplishing the goals the book lays outThe book makes a strong case for not identifying Theorieboek Rijbewijs B your definition ofourself with Contruire pas pas une pyramide fraisiers (Construction pas pas t. 1) your job For me personally this was probably the greatest single insight the book provided It made me realize how much I ve done just that As the author says whoou are is far greater than what Silent Strength (Strength, you do for money andour true work is far greater than our paid employment I thought this was a pretty powerful uoteIndeed in terms of sheer hours we may be wedded to our jobs than our mates The vows for better for worse richer or poorer in sickness and health and often until death do us part may be better applied to our jobs than our wives and husbandI suppose my only gripe with the book is the utopia of financial independence it paints where a person is able to live off the interest from their investments Although they make it sound like such a future can be right around the corner as someone with a pretty substantial amount of student debt I ran some numbers and barring an unforeseen windfall that possibility is a loooong way off for us But even aside from the focus on the financial euivalent of enlightenment there is so much wisdom in this book both practical and philosophical that I would recommend it to anyone This book s most popular review is surprisingly negative 35 stars I agree with the 5 star Goodreads evangelists That said I have a few ualms with the book It s dated and freuently redundant Like most personal finance books it s full of suspicious stories The Epilogue summarizes in 9 pages what has been beaten to death in the previous 327At one point the author talks about being financially secure whether the Dow is under 1000 or above 4000 When the book was copyrighted in 1992 1000 was a crash and 4000 was ambitious As of 1162015 the Dow stands at 1751157 up about 450% since 1992 so the book s stock market wariness is exaggerated Also its advice to buy long term US treasury bonds is terrible The present interest rates on those bonds is pathetic 269% on a 30 ear bond Read in 2015 Chapter 9 which describes 6% US treasury bonds reads like a uaint historical documentThe other chapters though they occasionally make redundant arguments are valuable In essence the book advocates extreme thrift in an effort to get off the consumerist treadmill The goal is to live modestly and be time rich rather than to live large and be time poor It makes the compelling case that to always want something better is a recipe for perpetual unhappiness To uote Lao Tzu He who knows he has enough is richThe book is sort of like an early 90s version of Mr Money Mustache who actually posted an excellent review of the book Your Money or Your Life proposes a nine step programStep 1 Tally up all the money Gardiens des Cits perdues - tome 7 Rminiscences (07) you ever made look aroundou and see what 69 Sex Positions.
