Today we ask the question: does Casey Neistat work too much? If you haven’t already, be sure to watch his daily vlogs. In this video we explore whether or not work life balance is important to our generation or are we just looking for meaningful work?
There are some people who seem to attract money and opportunities, and some people who work hard but never get ahead. Why is that? In this video we discuss the differences between viewing money from a position of weakness and a position of strength.
Ultimately money should not be the goal. Instead money is a tool to help you achieve what matters most to you.
Is it easy or hard for you to turn down overtime at work? Do you value your free time the same as your hourly wage? We don’t think it’s that simple. In this video we go over the 3 questions we ask ourselves before spending a lot of time on something:
1. Is the time spent pleasant, neutral, or unpleasant?
2. Will the time spent make you a better person?
3. Will the time spent contribute to learning to skills or physical activity?
If the answer is “yes” to any of those three questions, then we feel it doesn’t necessarily need to yield a positive financial gain. What do you think?
I think it’s healthy for a person to practice introspection from time to time. If nothing else, so they can answer for themselves…why? What makes you get up every morning, why do you act the way that you do? We’re asked “why?” all the time, and in this video we attempt to answer that question.
Why do we want to retire early?
Why do we make YouTube videos?
Why do you build complex solutions to simple problems?
After thinking through everything, we realized the reason is because?creating is more rewarding than consuming. In fact, a study published by the American Journal of Public Health, found that making art/things is actually a benefit to your physical and mental health.
Health and wealth are two things you have to work hard to get and keep. There are no shortcuts to wealth. And if you find one, studies have shown you won’t have it for long.
In this video we talk a little bit about the Millionaire Next Door, and the 7 traits that most wealthy people share:
1.They live well below their means.
2.They allocate their time, energy and money efficiently in wealth building activities.
3.They belief financial independence is more important that displaying high status.
4/5.They did not inherit their wealth and their adult children are economically self sufficient.
6. They are great at selecting and seizing opportunity.
7. They chose the right occupation.
People often assume we obsess over money. That’s actually pretty far from the truth. In fact, we propose you might think about money more than we do.
What’s more important is that you approach every financial decision from a place of strength and control, not weakness. In the video, we discuss a few reasons why our lifestyle lends itself to that mindset.
