“Oh, money, I’m actually not interested in money.” So many people say that.
Yet they’ll work at a job for eight hours or more (that they don’t even like) just to be able to buy stuff to impress their neighbours, the Tans and Lees (who they don’t really like either), who might be buried in debt—from trying so hard to impress them.
Many of you hate financial education. You think it’s confusing. You don’t want anything to do with it. Nevertheless, you love money (when you have it). Still, you see no irony in this.
The way out of the rat race: Do learn as much as possible about how money works, so that you do not have to spend your entire life working for money, but have money work for you!

By the way, the trouble with the rat race is that even if you win in it, you are still a rat. Maybe it could be clever to choose a different race to participate in.
So now, my dear regular reader, what is the big problem with this post?
Way too many links, you say. No, that’s not what I am hinting at.
The problem is that you do know all of the above already. You are not the target group of this post and those who urgently do need to know the above are not reading my TACOMOB-blog.
They are spending their time spending their money instead of investing it. Having given up on the pursuit for delayed gratification. Whiling away their time with such brilliant pastimes as hunting Pokemons.
What can we do? Any ideas?
Why doesn’t a creative person come up with a NUGGETS GO game where you have to hunt for nuggets of financial wisdom? Where you have to share those nuggets with as many people as possible? Of course including the bragging rights of having found all nuggets of financial wisdom and having become financially invincible?
“Without wisdom, gold is quickly lost by those who have it, but with wisdom, gold can be secured by those who have it not.”- George S. Clason in The Richest Man in Babylon (1926)
