They mislead us all

They mislead us all

We are told since childhood that the proven process for achieving financial security is-

  1. Study hard
  2. Get a job
  3. Work hard
  4. Get promoted
  5. Earn well
  6. Live happily ever after.

But most people in the world are following the same process and we already know that the majority are not wealthy instead, they are poor. So this process cannot be a method to be financially secure or free.

We need to think and reflect on this "No one, school, college, course can teach you everything about money, they can teach you about how to earn a living."

Singer Rihanna nearly went bankrupt after overspending. She then sued her financial adviser.

Adviser: Was it really necessary to tell her that if you spend money on things, you will end up with the things and not the money.

Set up multiple income streams

Set up multiple income streams

  • Use the skills you have to start an agency and hire folks to manage that.
  • If you are a content creator, build your audience on a platform and run ads, affiliates & sponsorships.
  • If you've got expertise in something, record the lessons once and make a self-paced course about that.
  • If you're on a property train, and have some spaces, either rent them or invest in REITs.
  • If your skills include creativity, you can earn royalties.

The trick is to try new things you can and stay curious.

Don't Spend Less, Spend Right

Don't Spend Less, Spend Right

Try this 50:30:20 rule.

Break down your income after tax - 

  • 50% on basic needs,
  • 30% on wants/desires/things you love,
  • 20% on savings, to invest.

Reflect on the 'why' before you 'buy'.

Stay away from bad debt.

Clear your loans faster (either by paying extra EMIs per year or by increasing your EMIs every year).

Saving is not s*xy, but we should save for emergencies and our dreams.

Savings give you the ultimate F*ck-you power (The power to walk away from a job you hate, to handle a medical emergency without deleting your reserves, to move into your place, and the power to live life on your terms.

The System wants you to make MISTAKES

The System wants you to make MISTAKES

Learn from the mistakes of others-

  1. Risk can't be eliminated. It can only be understood and managed.
  2. Live well, today. Also, live responsibly. Make Budget.
  3. Don't ignore inflation. It is the silent money eater.
  4. Don't ignore the taxes too.
  5. Do not spend money that you do not have.
  6. The ego is like your 'social media filter'. The 'INSTA you' versus the 'Raw, unfiltered you'.
  7. Understand the dark side of compounding too.
  8. Be aware that most purchases have a hidden cost.
  9. Don't rely on a single job.
  10. Create a margin of safety.
  11. The fastest way to become wealthy is to go slow. The earlier you start, the better.

Our Biases decide for us Unconsciously

Our Biases decide for us Unconsciously

Numbers don't drive money decisions, Our biases do, and our emotions do.

Our emotions make us do some very stupid things. I know that we are all prone to biases that we don't even know we have. Sellers capitalize on this, so no choice is presented neutrally. For example-

Cognitive Bias- FRAMING EFFECT.

It means no information is presented neutrally. Given 2 Options, we'll always pick a story we like.

Assume, You are in a supermarket, and see a delicious product there, its packing says

  1. 70% Fat-Free
  2. 30% Fat

Most of us choose option 1 but see, these both are the same things but presented differently.

More Biases

More Biases

It was quite interesting reading about these cognitive biases, this book has mentioned 13 biases. These are very thought-provoking, I researched and found a book that has given some more details about 100 such Biases with daily life examples, and how to overcome them just by thinking critically named 

THE BIASED LENS (100 Cognitive Biases with their daily life examples and ways to overcome them)

I recommend you go and understand around 100 biases in that book, and I assure you that you will not be the same as you are now.

CURATED BY

Just another homo-sapien

CURATOR'S NOTE

This book is by an Indian Author "Ankur Warikoo". He has been terrible with his money management nearly all his life. This was because he was never taught anything about money. All that he was taught was how to earn a living. So he set out to write this book for his younger self, sharing everything he had been taught while adulting. It is practical, has no technical jargon, and teaches how to earn, spend, and put money to work.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
