The number my life long philosophy


Recommended Posts

Ever since I was young I watched people do all they could for the all mighty dollar.I watched people stab their coworkers in the back, fail their personal health and worse of all neglect their families till they are hated by their children and divorced and alone.

When I caught myself following this path years ago I decided instead of focusing on my career over anything else I would set a number once that number was met I would not gun for that next promotion, I would not fill every day with overtime but instead I would focus on all the things that brought me joy. I would pour that time and energy into myself, my family and my passions.

I met that number a few years back and even with higher cost of living I am still able to live a great life.

How I calculated my personal number is I had to make enough to afford the following without stress.Rent/mortgageFoodEssential utilitiesOccasional funAbility to save for large purchases and retirement.

For each person this maybe a different list and number but in the end look at your life and look at those living at the top of your work/corporate food chain. Though some may still have great lives many of them are on their 2nd 3rd or tenth marriage, their children hate them and they are always stressed.

Live your life to the fullest and do not be afraid to make sacrifices and compromises but those should never be in the form of your family or your health. There is always another job, another class and another chance for success. There may never be another chance to keep your families love and respect.

I thought I would share this little bit as I have seen too many others have all that they neglected taken from them then after it is too late they spiral into depression and regret.

Do not make your career your identity make your life, love, passion, family and talents your identity.

    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/

    • Thank you! I'm looking through that thread now. It looks like I'll be dropping by Best Buy on my way home tonight to have a look at what they have! They have 10TBs in stock, so maybe I'll grab a couple!  
    • I PMed you a link to the my source for this, a very popular Canadian deals (non-tech) forum. There are no guarantees you'll get the one you're looking for, but the accumulated intelligence is rather compelling, especially with returns allowed for unopened drives until January 16th, 2021. As those reports stand now, and discounting any shills:
