Interesting article about fire and life/money

Some part is debatable, but some parts hit the nail in the head.

Making money is procrastinating

Money is the ultimate optionality: it’s the right to buy something later. The cost of that option is the inflation rate.

So when we don’t know what to do, we focus on making more money, assuming we are going to figure out what to do with it later.

And also this:

There is a whole category of things you learn about only after you learn to read English: Self-improvement is one of those things. Some parts of the Anglosphere Global Culture are more evident if you were raised outside of it.

Self-improvement starts from the idea that you can improve by applying discipline. You could be better, healthier, wiser, wealthier if you just applied yourself. This is cool.

But please, do not spend your life self-improving. At some point, we’re going to die, self-improved or not. Don’t look at unproductive time as wasted time.

imho worth reading the whole thing.
