Exhausted Rich or Happy Rich?

ONE

Talking yesterday with a father, about jobs & choices – high valued big jobs like doctor, lawyer or financial jobs, and workers, like electricians and plumbers. With this observation in mind : good workers make big money, yeyyyy.

Then a category split appeared with a few examples we saw :

  1. This electrician he knows, who says he never stops working, he never takes holidays, because he is “very much in demand”, all the time.
  2. This lawyer I knew who worked half a month before traveling everywhere in the world with his wife – I used to see him biking with his briefcase!

 

TWO

There, I have to put what a banker told me one day (which seams almost a law) :

most people live just a little OVER what they earn

I think it’s true!

 

THREE

Now there’s a huge difference between the US and other modern countries : health. In Europa you don’t need to have millions of dollars in bank to pay all the treatments and cares needed after an accident. Everybody pays a little, every month. It’s not made for poors and olds, but for everyone. It’s NOT socialism. It’s Left and Right. You won’t ever hear about a personal bankruptcy because of health, in France!

 

FOUR

OK let’s imagine we’re in Europa. You can :

  1. Pile up money into bank accounts. You work all the time, then you’re dead. Rich.
  2. Pile up money to buy things, cars and big houses.
  3. Pile up money to buy free time and experiences.

So we talked about this guy, who works three weeks and takes 10 days off : holidays. Every fucking month.

He could make much more money, but what for? To have much more money?

 

…most people live just a little OVER what they earn.

What’s smart, then?

Exhausted Rich or Happy Rich?
