Life Pillars

I came up with these Pillars for Life.


Obvious and true. The best way to learn to value Health, is to lose it. Don’t, if you can help it.
Actions: diet, exercise and lifestyle.


Books, books, books, travel, high-value connections.


Family, friends, business associates, acquaintances with shared interests.

Financial Security -> Financial Independence

Financial Security: live within your means (keep expenses below income), money doesn’t cause stress on a regular basis, you have a buffer (e.g. $1000-$5000) for unexpected expenses.

Financial Independence: don’t need to worry about the “right-hand side of the menu.” Can live off interest on principal.
