This is beautiful & perfect. I'm so sorry you lost him.
I just... I can't even... HOW IS A $32,000 LEXUS AN AVERAGE CAR? I just can't feel sorry for this guy's money worries when he is living with 3 cars and 3 houses and a 3 year cash cushion in savings. I honestly can't imagine how anyone could be so un self aware.
@Madeline Shoes You might be able to elicit some sympathy. "They took ALL of my money! Both dollars!"
This series increasingly makes me wish that my parents had a secret trust fund set up for me. They don't (or do they????).
I think I like Mike Dang on a soapbox. Go get 'em, tiger!
The "just deserts" revelation just shattered my entire universe.
@eagerber Agreed. Also "compound interest goes both ways". So simple and obvious, yet I had never thought of it that way.
@lalaland Mike Dad
I personally, don't feel good about anything first thing in the morning, even things I like, so I can't even imagine being excited about work in the morning. Bed > work always and forever
Never, ever, even if my job was to play with puppies all day, would I be bounding out of bed in excitement to go to work. I love my job, but it's still a job, and it's ok that it feels like work. I'm so happy with this article! I think lots of people feel a little duped by the who "Wake up excited to go to work" line.
