Hi all from a beautiful Chateauform castle where we’re running an innovation masterclass for 30 wonderful, creative people from four continents. Love my job!

Money Solves Money Problems

This is one of Naval Ravikant’s famous quotes:

“When you’re finally wealthy, you’ll realize that it wasn’t what you were seeking in the first place”

Money solves your money problems, but it doesn’t get you everywhere.

“The first thing you realize when you make a bunch of money is that you’re still the same person. If you’re happy, you’ll still be happy If you’re unhappy, you’ll still be unhappy.”

Why Do They?

This advice from Ramit Sethi will help you understand why people spend a lot of money on crazy things. So if the way someone spends their money sounds crazy for you, really dig into it. Instead of being sarcastic, be curious:

“Why would this person buy a business class ticket? Maybe there’s a good reason behind it? He/She must know something I don’t, and I want to understand why.”

For some people, the comfort of $9,000 business class ticket might be totally worth it.

Music I Love Working To

Frédéric Chopin was born in Poland — as I was. I love to listen to sad piano music when I work, especially to sad piano music by Erik Satie and Frédéric Chopin. And this is my favorite one: Prelude in E-Minor (op.28 no. 4). Do you know any other sad piano songs you would recommend to me?

Quote I Love

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” — Anaïs Nin

Have you done anything courageous today?

Have a great weekend all!
