Today we discuss the concept of lifestyle design, which has been a core piece of TSP since the very first days of our journey. Many credit author and entrepreneur Tim Ferris with this concept. I love Tim and have followed his work for years. There is no doubt that he is a big part of the movement today, but he simply made people aware of the concept. The concept itself is as old as civilization.
There have always been people who have lived differently then others, more disciplined and with a plan for their life. For instance the 1926 classic “The Richest Man in Babylon” is form of lifestyle design focused on specifically financial aspects of your life. That said when one institutes financial discipline, they end up doing well designing the rest of their lives as well. As Dave Ramsey says, “people that win with money, win at life”. I don’t 100% agree with Dave but he has that one nailed down tight.
Today we Take a Look at How Lifestyle Design Leads to Personal Liberty…
- How can people best understand what lifestyle design is all about
- Why I say that your life is being designed, the question is only by whom
- What role does lifestyle design play in the world of preparedness
- Do you have to be an entrepreneur to practice lifestyle design
- So what role does entrepreneurship and side hustle play in lifestyle design
- Why you have to design in recreation and family time, etc.
- How your view of “retirement” changes when you practice lifestyle design
- How can you get children thinking about life style design when they are still young
- Are goals more important than plans or is it the other way around, or are they equal
- How do we program our “mental computer” and why is it so important to understand that
