ISN’T THE PSYCHOLOGY AND MATH OF MONEY AMAZING? IF WE HAVE A SINGLE SHARE OF A $5 STOCK AND THE PRICE RISES TO $10 (ie a 100% increase, or doubling your money), TO MOST OF US, THIS IS NOT A LIFE-CHANGING AMOUNT OF MONEY. HOWEVER, IF WE HAVE 10,000 SHARES OF THAT SAME $5 STOCK, AND THE STOCK PRICE DOUBLES, NOW OUR INVESTMENT OF $50,000 HAS DOUBLE TO $100,000. TO ALMOST ALL OF US, THIS WOULD BE A LIFE-CHANGING AMOUNT OF MONEY. THE SAME STOCK, SAME STOCK PRICE, SAME STOCK PRICE INCREASE, BUT DRAMATICALLY DIFFERENT IMPACT ON ONE’S LIFE, ALL DUE TO TO THE INITIAL, ORCUMULATIVE, DOLLAR AMOUNT INVESTED.

The lesson seems to be that our earliest work to earn money, our earliest attempts to reduce debt and taxes, and our earliest buying and holding of quality investments, are by far the most important effects for our long-term financial wealth.

SOMETIMES THE EARTH UNDER YOU IS MOVING, AND EVERYTHING AROUND YOU IS CHANGING, BUT YOU ARE NOT CHANGING. DO YOU STAY THE SAME? DO YOU MOVE IN WAYS AND DIRECTIONS THAT MAY MAKE LIFE BETTER FOR YOU, BUT TRULY ARE NOT YOU?

Your friends, who work at the same job, and support you emotionally, move to other jobs. Then, your supervisors, with whom you get along, get promoted and move on. The new supervisors and the company start wanting you to change how you perform your job, and change how your performance is measured. Do accommodate all the changes, by changing yourself and staying, or do you, move on?

WE NEED TO ITERATE, TEST, FAIL FAST, “MOVE FAST AND BREAK THINGS”, WHEN DEALING WITH SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE. THIS SAME PHILOSOPHY DOES NOT APPLY WHEN INVOLVING HUMAN EMOTIONS, HEALTH, LIFE, AND SUFFERING.

IF YOU DO NOT (GENTLY, KINDLY, AND CONSCIENTIOUSLY) TELL A LOVED ONE AN URGENT TRUTH, NOW, YOU AND THAT PERSON WILL SUFFER, TOGETHER, LATER.

Your insomnia, sadness, anxiety, traumatized feelings and substance abuse are, in large part, a response to your thinking and believing that there is something wrong with you or that something went terribly wrong in your past.

Sometimes, suffering and incapacity are due to a disease or diseases.

Often, suffering and incapacity are due to our minds and our bodies RESPONDING ( ie a form of dysfunctional healing) to diseases and traumas.

No matter who we are, we all have at least a little bit of pride and a little bit of ego invested in everything we do or say. Unfortunately these two human traits prevent us from recognizing that we need help, asking for help, and accepting help. Others who love us and care about us, have pretty good insights into our deficiencies and insights into the causes for our problems. LISTEN TO THESE IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN OUR LIVES.

CLEAN OUT your head (sleep, exercise, screen time, sleep apnea, alcohol, drugs, poor nutrition, mood and anxiety), in order to CLEAR UP how you think.

Our high school English teachers or college rhetoric teachers may have instructed us to improve how we deliver our messages by writing more precisely, and using fewer words. Likewise, all of us can speak more precisely, and conserve words in order to achieve these same goals.

JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING IS NEEDED, IS NEW, GENERATES GREAT BUZZ, AND IS THE MOST TECHNOLOGY ADVANCED, DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY MAKE IT THE BEST, OR EVEN THE RIGHT, ANSWER FOR OUR PROBLEMS.

WHY IT IS SO CONFUSING IS THAT YOU CAN BELIEVE ALMOST ANYTHING, NOT GET AN ADVANCED DEGREE (or obtain one), BE IN ALMOST ANY TYPE OF BUSINESS, AND STILL MAKE A VERY SUCCESSFUL LIFE AND LIVING OUT OF IT ALL.
