Economic mindfulness

“Light purse makes a heavy heart.”

~ Benjamin Franklin

Not having enough money can cause one to suffer. The suffering may involve stress, anger, depression, and unhappiness. A lot of them.

Granted, it isn’t your fault if you were born poor, but if you die poor, it implies you wasted your life.

No, it is not about being overly money-minded in all your actions. It is about giving conscious attention to money and creating enough value for the world so the world has no choice but to reward you with the currencies of the world.


The world’s currencies are not limited to financial currencies such as Dollars, Pounds, Rupees, and Euros. It includes having remarkable health, enough knowledge to take pride in, personal and professional relationships that flourish you, unique experiences you created or participated in, and more.

Two actions items:

  1. Get a firm grasp of how economics works. Local and global – both.
  2. Develop a habit of reviewing your career, business, and life decisions from the perspective of finance and economics.

As a byproduct, you will get the necessary clarity that will help you to make the subsequent decisions better.
