      Love the idea of how the highest form of wealth has to do with controlling your time!

        I've always believed this, too, and it's obvious, really. Bill Gates and I have very little in common, but we sure do have one thing in common: we're both gonna die. Can't buy time. We have to do all that we can in the time we have.

      Even if you’re doing the same work, the independence of doing it on your own terms changes everything in the same way that sleeping in a tent is fun when you’re camping but miserable when you’re homeless.

      Rings true!

      This is it:

      A person whose expectations relative to income are calibrated so they don’t even have to think about money has a higher form of wealth than someone with more money who’s constantly thinking about making the numbers work.
