Re: Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss *dives behind cover*

I will give me opinion on him based on "4-HW". I think he hasn't changed since. He gave me this perspective of "being smart", but from my personal point of view he sometimes crossed line of being moral/ethical/sensible/opportunistic (you need to feel it, I can't explain it). Throwing away oponent in...

Satiety and energy crashes on different diet models in specific case

Well... Most people there should or want to follow high-carb diet (due to price of staples and ability to not own big freezer, etc. and system stuff). At the moment, I am rather proponent of MC HF LP. I try to emulate LCHF, but carbs are very tempting. Below I use percentage as energy intake After m...

Re: Small business ownership

Hmm.

I will join this topic. Once I heard about businesses (which probably are in area of "small businesses") where "the manager" is not in charge for antything, he can delegate everything to other people. In what direction should I go if I want to know more about it?

Re: minimalist wardrobe

Weeee!!! I bought chinos for about 30-50% of monetary value compared to the mall solution. I am so happy, becuase they are dark. Waiting for them to "appear" was a bit boring. Not so extreme (yet) as: What do I do? I would get underwear and socks new, but everything I would get used. Start with free...

Re: How to Dive the Barrier Reef for Cheap

If you travel "millennial"-style (I hope you didn't paid for package holiday :D ), take a hustle in the ...

Re: Want to fight climate change? Have fewer children

Somebody needs to keep the system working that's, like, Stahlmann's opinion, man I think that (for example) self-breeding for read meat would be time consuming, so it's better that some people stay in workforce and provide cheap products due to industralization. With the lentils is the same :lol: !...

Re: Want to fight climate change? Have fewer children

Stop having white babies so we can justify brown people replacing you on your own homeland.

Re: How to quit coffee?

How do you "care" about your money?

There was the topic about where the money resides/is altogether. How about the way you secure "it". I mean in every developed country there is the rule which says that you can receive your money back from your savings account up to some value (but what if one of major baks collapse :lol: ).

Re: If you could go back/forward and give your 21, 29, 45, and 77 year old selves a book, then what would it be?

@Stahlmann I read "Difficult Conversations" recently. I recommend it. If you have to interact with people, but find emotional drama cumbersome, this book teaches you a good approach to handle that. I kind of make a game of it. Like, can I use these tools to chill someone out who has it in for me. ....

Interesting topic on "example level". I wanted to start it on different "fancy hobbies". My "solutions": 1. Pay for it. ERE is not only about sacrifices.
