“The one thing I wish I had known in my 20’s…. EVERYTHING you think is important and meaningful has absolutely no bearing on your future life….   So the only thing I can with full integrity say I wish I had known is: nothing at all matters….  The main skill I got between my 20’s and now is that I bounce back from bad things faster….  Now I bounce back from bad things faster.  It’s freeing.  I go all out every day.  I throw myself into everything.  I cut what doesn’t work and I ignore the rules that keep me from doing what I know is possible.  And when I do everything works better for me.” -James Altucher

“But you must replace the old, defective idea that retirement means living off passive income only. Paint a new mental picture of what retirement can be: a life free from financial worry that includes lots of travel, fun, and leisure. Funded in part by active income from doing some sort of meaningful work.” -Mark Ford
