I had a really busy/intense weekend, so here are the best of the things I read this week. More from me when my brain recovers.
Derek Sivers tell us to get specific. I like this a lot.
Cake now or cake tomorrow? The crux of personal finance.
This 'starve and stack' idea is pretty interesting. The limited time frame makes it bearable, and the intensity allows you to accomplish significant things.
Ten reasons to invest in index funds.
These twelve rules for life are pretty good. I like #3 and #8 ;)
A fairly down-to-earth millionaire interview from ESI.
A more nuanced take on savings rates. Ours is comfortably over 50% now, but it was much lower when our three girls were at home.
Tim Ferriss interviewing Naval Ravikant: podcast and transcript. Really good stuff.
Questions to ask during the next bear market.
Morgan Housel has a great list of important things we don't notice because they are obvious.
Does money make us happy? Or is this a bit more nuanced?
An article about how the Olympics isn't going to magically fix everything wrong with Japan. Well, duh.
Physician on Fire writes about the book How to Think about Money.
This article claims the yen will remain stable going forward. Get ready for it to shoot up in three... two... one...
I really enjoy the vlog Tokyo on Fire. In this episode they talk about why the labour deregulation bill failed to clear the Diet last week.
Being unable to explain things clearly without jargon is probably a red flag.
There are many reasons to be optimistic these days.
Anything good in there? Any great news stories we missed?
