“Four Thousand Weeks”
This post continues on my take aways of the book “Four Thousand Weeks”. There will never be a perfect moment in life, one should never fantasise “if I achieve FI, or if I quit my job, or if I retire and travel the world, or if my kids grow up, then I will be happy”. Life is always filled with challenges. Deal with it by doing the next most necessary thing, and find tranquility and fulfilment from it. That’s the meaning of life. Some of the additional actionable take aways from the book:
- Embrace Constraints: Constraints can foster creativity. Instead of viewing limitations as obstacles, see them as opportunities to innovate and find novel solutions.
- Pursue Experiences Over Things: Prioritize experiences and memories over material possessions. These tend to bring greater long-term happiness.
- Learn to Say No: Don’t overcommit yourself. Saying no to non-essential obligations frees up time for what truly matters.
- Practise Doing Nothing: I really like this one, sometimes we just need to learn to be idle for a while!
