All of us have a limited time to walk on earth and that all of us are exchanging our time for money. The only difference between most of us the multiple at which we are exchanging our per minute of time for money. Some have higher multiples, and some have lower multiples. There are the lucky few who just happen to be born into the Bukit Timah area.
Each and every of us have the free will to exchange the money we have earned for some kind of service or product which enriches our mind and/or body. The choices we make today will determine our lives tomorrow and onwards. Let’s examine the few things that will get the most bang for the buck.
Upgrading your skills
Spending money to upgrade your skills keeps you relevant in the ever-changing environment as the adage goes “Change is the only constant”. It is one of the ways to increase your money earning multiple thus enabling you to make more money per minute.
Chicken soup for the soul
Get a book and read. Read out of your comfort zone and into different genres. Dive in and indulge in the magnificent minds of others. It is also the perfect time to find solace and disconnect from the daily hustle and bustle over a cup of coffee and a book.
Travel the world
Not trying to contradict the previous point but the world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page. Experience a new culture and feel a different world under your feet. Learn that there are many other ways to live life and be appreciative of what you have instead of being jealous of what you don’t have.
Spending money to protect your money
Life being frail and fragile, it is also full of the unexpected. Illnesses and unexpected deaths can take a serious toll on the finances in the family. Buying insurance while looking costly ensures that you are protecting the majority of your wealth with a fraction of your wealth. It is a very worthy investment.
A good mattress
You spend 1/3 of your life on the mattress and there is no reason why you wouldn’t invest on a piece of good mattress to get that great night’s rest. Having good quality sleep is akin to having good quality fuel to run the extra mile in your life.
