NotePD Round Up
Some great lists on NotePD over the last couple of day.
1. "Lower your expenses and buy assets"
From @wyip who added that "The more you don't have to rely on money, the more freedom you have to choose the job you want (and not the job you need)." I generally believe that people can get by quite happily on much less than they might think. Keys to that outcome IMO are living below your means, building up savings and opting out of the typical cycle of upgrading houses and cars.
2. Vegas baby, Vegas!
@mventre listed favorite trips he's taken including Las Vegas. If you are unaware, Las Vegas has become a great destination for sports like NHL, college basketball conference tourneys, there's at least one college football bowl game, NASCAR, the Mint 400, minor league baseball, the Oakland A's might be moving there and there's chatter about an NBA expansion team.
3. "The future of money is software (cashless)"
From @Job. I just read something about this noting why we should use cash which resonated. Basically, with each electronic transaction, intermediaries take their cut and the money essentially disappears versus paying cash which is not subject to intermediary fees.
4. "Intermittent fasting should be part of most people's life"
From @chris407x. He notes it can be as simple as skipping breakfast which I've been doing for about 6 years. This is very worth learning about if you haven't yet looked into it.
5. "Discovering the Fountain of Youth"
More intermittent fasting from an anonymous list who went on to say "Intermittent fasting has gained significant attention in recent years for its potential health benefits. This idea explores the concept of intermittent fasting, where individuals alternate between periods of eating and fasting. By adopting this eating pattern, research suggests that it may help improve metabolic health, reduce inflammation, promote cellular repair, and even increase lifespan. Incorporating intermittent fasting into one's lifestyle can be a powerful tool for achieving a longer and healthier life."
6. Don't check luggage
I've been seeing a lot of articles about this lately, below is a link to one of them which is done in list form. I've been carryon only for a very long time. It saves time on both ends of your flight and no need to hassle with potentially lost luggage.
