#RallyForRivers With Sadhguru


wealthymatters

Green earth, fertile soil, healthy ecosystems and at the heart of them all… healthy rivers……………….What price can you put on all this ?……….You’re right, they are invaluable. And we are at a point in time in the history of India where we can pitch in and ensure that we as a nation take the right decisions and put in the work over the next 25 years to ensure that we pass on a “sujalam, sufalam” country to future generations, rather than simply press children to sing such words, even as they know nothing other than a degraded land.

Carlos Ghosn On His Life ,Identity And Globalization


wealthymatters

The first I heard of Carlos Ghosn was a decade ago. My friend Damien was his head of automotive-train research and boy did he hero-worship the man! Even in those days, I was mostly put off by this man’s philosophy of life though I could hardly have articulated why. But a decade on, I can bluntly state our differences:

1.I’m of the ” work is a part of life” school not the “work-life balance” school. So with me, its find personally meaningful work, work that feels like play and indulge in doing something joyful everyday. Family and friends, according to their capacity and interests, are welcome to join me in my work.

2.I’m cosmopolitan, but at the same time deeply rooted in my primordial identities. I have no interest in changing my stand to pander to either Nationalists or Internationalists.

3.Family is central to my life. The only reason I’m bothered about wealth is for the good life it can secure for family and the larger community, in that order. Sacrificing family and social life to make more money is not a compromise I’m willing to make.

That said, its not to say that it not worthwhile reading what Carlos Ghosn has to say. He is right in saying that where we are born need not limit what we become. And for a person who shares more in common with Carlos, perhaps he is a good role model. Damien has an Algerian father, a French mother, a French citizenship and education and practices Kendo , a Japanese style sword-fighting. He identifies as French because as he says,he believes in French secularism. An approach I can’t really quite wrap my mind round, but obviously it works for some people! Read more of this post

Designing Your Retirement


wealthymattersI think it a pity that so many Indians are so worried about retirement Link. For a few years now, I could have simply decided to quit all work and live off the income from my assets . It’s a different matter that I choose to work . I find personally meaningful work, one of the biggest sources of pleasure in my life.

Perhaps my approach of planning and providing for retirement will help many more people quit worrying about  it. So here it is :

1.First ask yourself if you wish to ever fully retire. When ?

2.Then ask yourself where you wish to live upon retirement ? Or would you really prefer to live a gypsy’s existence, going wherever your fancy takes you.

3.What are the plans, wishes and expectations of the rest of your family ,even as you retire ?What do you think of these claims ?How would accommodating their needs modify your plans? Read more of this post
