Today is Amazon Prime Day. If you are unsure what that entails, the long and short of it is that Amazon has devised a way to clear space in their warehouses for the upcoming fall releases by selling off their less popular merchandise for discounted prices. To top it off, they are creating additional exclusivity around their offers by limiting them to those who are paying members of their customer ...

Around four years back, cryptocurrencies, and Bitcoin, in particular, gained mainstream media coverage, and my attention, for the first time. The price of a single Bitcoin surged past $200, highlighting its meteoric rise in a relatively short timespan. As someone interested in all things digital, and particularly those that promise to change our world and disrupt traditional industries, I put a lot of time into trying to understand the phenomenon. ...

After our recent personal tragedy, I have been experiencing feelings I thought were a thing of the past for me: Strong and sudden impulses to spend money mindlessly, and without any particular rhyme or reason to it. In keeping with our strategy for coping with our grief, I shared these concerns with my better half, and it after airing them out, I discovered that this is a typical reaction in ...

A week ago, my partner and I were forced to face the shattering news that nobody ever wants to hear. Our newborn daughter, our first child, our baby girl, who had arrived a month early, would not be going home with us when we eventually left the hospital. A day later, the hospital staff disconnected her from the respirator that helped keep her alive, and a few hours after that, ...

A couple of months back I reiterated my goal for the year of publishing an article per week here at Abovare. Today, the merciless calendar shows us that the date is June 3rd, while the most recent article here shows May 8th as its publication date. Where did the month of May go, and why did I fail so spectacularly so shortly after restating my commitment to this goal, and ...

For most people, the earnings of professional athletes at the top of the game in the most popular sports are ridiculous and without meaning. And that is if you break them down into monthly or even weekly sums. Cristiano Ronaldo, the best-paid footballer in the world in 2016, made $82 cool million last year. That’s just shy of $7 million per month, $1,6 million per week, $225,000 per day. Or, ...

Talking about giving up your daily latte, and pocketing the money instead as a road to financial success has become a bit of a cliché in the literature of personal finance, to the point that it is easy to make fun of all the people parroting the same advice. Nevermind that the average American spend just shy of $100 per month on coffee, and cutting that one expense could grow ...

The western capitalist societies place an inordinate amount of confidence in the abstract concept of “the market”. We commonly rely on the market to solve our problems, to ensure that our world progresses in the right direction, and to distribute the collective wealth we have created. However, many people fail to understand what a functioning market entails, and the requirements that must be fulfilled for a market to be considered ...

Goals serve two primary functions: They act as maps, saying something about where we want to end up at a particular point in time. And, more importantly, they give us the required information to create our itineraries and evaluate our progress compared to the plan as we go along. While setting objectively good goals is important, creating goals only to see if you reached them at the specified time is akin ...
