This was really an amazing book. It’s a modern classic, and I started to realize that this is the precursor to so many other financial Independence books, early retirement books and blogs that I have read and have been a fan of.
My biggest takeaway from this book is the idea of money as “Life Energy”. You only have so much Life Energy. Most of us choose to convert the large majority of our energy into money, by working a job or by having a business. We all have a limited amount of energy. Once you convert that energy into money, whatever you spend it on, just be sure that you are getting a good value. I want to make sure that I am not wasting my life energy on things that do not really matter or that just serve to clutter up my life. Under this presumption, the best use of money would be investments (just like so many other things I have read).
