Memories Pay Dividends Too: How to Advocate for Memorable Life Experiences

podcast Apr 27, 2023

In our lives and careers, we’re taught to work, make money, save it, and enjoy it later.

Unfortunately, this delayed gratification mentality robs us of the experiences we can have right now when we have our health and are young enough to enjoy them.

But just like stocks, life experiences pay dividends too and if we can negotiate for them in our contracts, we can enjoy more of our lives now.

How do we carve out room for meaningful life experiences?

In this episode, I reflect on what I’ve been learning in Bill Perkins’ book, Die With Zero.

  • You don’t have to wait till retirement
    Are there ways for us to make those bucket list things a reality for us right now?
