    The enough part makes no sense to me, if I ever reach an "enough" section then where will the money to donate come from? how will I fulfil my duty as a member of a developed society with economical power to invest towards the ethical and logical? Donating, preservation efforts, house, pets, good food, knowledge, etc, all of that is happiness and none of it can be achieved without money.

    I once worked as a supply teacher. The pay was average but it was done by day, and sometimes it was fun but most of the time it felt like a direct swap of time for money. I saved SO much money in that time because I was just so aware of what the price of something really meant – e.g. a takeaway on average was the equivalent of an hour of dealing with kids. Would I deal with kids for another hour in order to have a takeaway? Nope.

    From the bottom of my heart. I advise you to learn the Quran. Everything you have learnt and achieved is already there in the Quran. Your Lord has already explained how to live life. Your learning so much from various authors and books. All these concepts are already there in our Quran and Sunnah. Im not talking about the fake Islam people are practicing nowadays but the real one that has been lost.

    This holds true when medical expenses are free/ taken care by the govt. Else, there is never a situation of "enough money", when a serious uncalled for illness of you/your loved one can empty your entire savings.

    The point about spending money to impress peers is so true. I have been working from home since March 2020 and I have spent way less money on clothes than I usually would. It's as much to do with no feeling that I have to 'dress up' for work and wear something different every day as it is to do with not being influenced by what my colleagues are wearing. Just seeing heads on screen certainly helps with shoe envy!

    Just watched this now. I do more with Minimalism these days. When I decided to buy a new caravan one of the things i did was in a spreadsheet calculate the amount of time I would have to be in work in my life in order to buy what I wanted. I am trying to persuade my wife to let us move into a smaller house to clear our debt.

    75K/yr but working how much? there's an enormous difference between making that kind of money working 10 hours a day compared to let's say, 5 hours a week!

  • Make Build Modify

    Hey Ali, Do you know if the $75k/yr is per person in a household or for an entire household? The ambiguity of this number always distracts me when I hear it used.

    This book, even though holding truths for a elite fraction of the population, is actually almost perverse in its take.
    First of all I would highly debate the claim defining ourselfs through work is a new developement. Look at the surnames smith, miller, baker ect. where do you think they come from?
    Even in the animal kingdom the main activity of a majority of species is gathering ressources to either a) sustain themselfs or their offspring or b) impress a mating partner.
    So I think to struggle for material success is built in us as a corecomponent.
    To be able to even think about whether we should be working less to gain more happieness is a luxury only the wealthiest percentage of human population have.
    The average human being has to absolutely work his a55 off to stay afloat.
    What percentage of human population earns 75k a year?
    I am working a proper job in a middle european country and I make half. I dare not think about how many people in Africa or Asia even come close to this.
    That take on money is for the richest I guess.

    Your money or your life- vicki robin
    1.Before it was earning a living
    Nowit is earning a dying.
    2.what is enough?
    At a certain point more money doesnt lead to more happiness and that enough is around 75 USD/year. energy
    Life energy= time plus energy
    When your buying something see the cost in terms of life energy. One thing that is worth life energy is investing in ourselves.
    4.three key wuestions about life energy
    1)did i receive fulfillment and satisfaction and value in proportion to the life energy spent.
    2)is this expenditure of life energy in alignment with my values and life purpose.
    3.) How might this expenditure change if i didnt have to work for money.

    This reminds of me Rich Dad Poor Dad, the guy was saying exactly the same thing. He said Schools and Educational Institutes will not tell you how to earn real money, they will tell you how to be an employee, if you earn money to pay for your possessions , rent etc, then you will forever be poor, if you earn money to get something then you are on your way to becoming rich

    I've heard certain number in the same range quite often.

    My questions are: is it before tax and is it just for a single person or a family.

    If family with two kids … is it then just double or even more.

    I know it's a bit long but recommend reading, it will make you a lot of money in the future

    Hello everyone, a few weeks ago I was exposed to this relatively new currency called "pi" and decided to do some research on it and now I am going to tell you about its benefits briefly

    First thing to understand pi is like bitcoin only that now the option to get free bitcoin is not possible and whoever did it a few years ago won and in a big way so for you to understand right now you can get free pi coins !!! And in the future there will be no such option, just buy and how long will it be possible to sell it at the moment we do not know how exactly pi is worth but the app will have 10M downloads we will know (currently has 8M) That it will be worth at its peak $ 1,000 each single coin although it is not like bitcoin but it is not a small amount at all, so how do you get the coins (To enter the app you must have an ordering code)

    My code: RichardPas

    After you download, there is a sign of lightning on the right side, gray, click on it and it will turn green and you will start earning (6 coins every day). Every 24 hours, you just need to enter the app, click on the lightning and that is where you earn coins.

    Application link:

    After you click, you will have the option to download, download and earn

    Do not forget to put my code: richardpas

    Anyone who does not understand English can copy what he does not understand and go to google and translate

    Keep in mind that you need patience

    It will not come fast

    Your decision whether to make money

    "Enough for fulfillment is around $75k / year according to certain studies" – what a joke, that is pennies. Enough is when you can be free of the rat race and do what you want without having to slave away daily. To truly experience freedom. Which takes way more than 75k a year. Society is delusional.

    So a good way of usinh that money is not to buy the ipad for enjoyment and rest from work but to invest in ourselves to presumably get a better work and / or understand life better which in return pays more. Interesting.

    (I still agree with it though)
