plan 100

by Odahh 9 replies
if you are under 40 and in good health now.. chances are you will live to and past 100.. also chances are with genetic therapies and natural healing.. sometime in the next few decade getting older will not mean what it means today and you will retain your health and vitality ..until right before you die ..

so i will switch gears right now ..

why do you want to get "rich" ..if you have kids they will be very "old" before you die and pass it on.. and on the same note .. you can make a lot of money now if you really want to.. then what ..will you do with the 60-80 years after that ..just keep earning more money ?

forget getting rich .. forget retiring ..forget a lot of what the old system taught you .. that system is limping along and collapsing ..

the only way to live a long happy live and get to that 100+ mark .. is to do stuff your passionate about ..not one passion but many many passion that you can nit together in the work you do to create value. stuff that gives your life meaning and gives you a reason to open your eyes every day ..

what good is getting rich if your misserable and need a illicit drug habit and a long list of prescribed drugs to get through the day .. what good is putting you day into building and furnishing a home you never get to live in and enjoy .. when more so than ever you can lose all that in minutes to a freak weather event ..

look at yourself today ..and ask yourself what can i do today to make my life better today ..that also will make the next 60, 70 , 80 years better ..learning new thing.. testing out new stuff to find stuff you like that you didn't think you would like .. try baking your own bread instead of buying from the store ..

day by day the things you use to need a lot of money for are cheaper..you have access to unlimited music and entertainment for free ..plant a garden and your food costs will go way down ..while your health might get better .

The one thing the will get more expensive at least for the next decade or so .. is getting sick and being misserable .. and the list of other things that go along with not taking care of yourself ..

the paradox is .. that if you do stuff that engages many of your passions and makes you money ... chances are you will do a lot more stuff and have much more opportunity to make money ..

    Thanks Odahh for writing this.

    I agree with what you said but sometimes when the work keeps piling up and the stress keeps increasing, it is really difficult to focus on health and getting prepared for 100.

      I agree with you my dear friend.

      I think everyone one of us, should make their health a primary goal, without good health, not much we can do.

      All the best.

    Let's all race to age 100! I believe money can make you live longer as long you don't get all crazy with it.

      I think if you look after yourself, you will live longer. Having a good nutrition plan and exercise on a daily basis, increases our longevity.

      All the best.

    This is the real key to success.

    When I was a teenager, fifty years ago (OMG has it really been that long ago?) I found ways to be self-employed, and at age 17, I made a promise to myself to alway remain self-employed, doing work I enjoy. It's a promise I've kept.

    Over the years, I've owned a half dozen businesses - some more successful than others, and all have been based around activities I enjoy. It has generally been a wonderful ride.

    This doesn't mean everything was all peaches and cream. At times there were challenges to work through. They are part of life.

    The ability to be autonomous, to make your own decisions, to be in control of your life, and not have others make your decision for you is a key to feeling fulfilled.

    But health can be an issue. On one hand I know others my age who are now having serious health issues, mostly caused by years of unhealthy habbits. Many from smoking, some from drinking way too much, and/or using street drugs. The others, from living a sedentary lifestyle.

    On the other hand, I've met people on the ski slopes who are in their late 80, and even in their 90s still remaining active - skiing! I have an uncle who is 92, and he walks several miles each day.

    Good post.
    At least in the IM area, there's no need to think of a time to retire. If it continues to provide financial returns and you enjoy the process, then by all means continue what you've been doing. It will help to keep you young in spirit.

  • I love IM. For me it isn't about the money. It is like a puzzle waiting to be solved and it is always fresh and new. Love it man!
