I was thinking about it on the way home, and the entire book might as well be a lenghy parable. It actually reads that way -- iconic characters, moral lessons, the sort of plot you can tie up with a big red bow. (And, according to that Web site, about 2% of the entire thing is factual!) It's actually kind of impressive.
Kloudiia, I have no idea why I suddenly decided to be interested in finances. I go in spurts. Three years ago it was fitness and nutrition. Two years ago it was henna (I went from knowing nothing to a professional artist in about a year). Last year it was intuition and energy practices (auras and stuff). This year and next looks like it's finances and investing. I've known that I should do something about my outlook on money for years -- I've been dating my business-major BF for five years now, and his dad is one of those guys that went from sleeping in his car during his college years to owning a million-dollar home in Tahoe in his forties and fifties. (The story of his business career is fascinating.) You'd think I would have gotten the hint earlier.
I still find the subject of money to be a bit dense, but my approach towards it has suddenly switched. When I come across something I don't understand, instead of immediately losing interest, I now think to myself, "Oh well, I'll understand that soon enough" and I skim through the rest of the article.
If anybody has tips on how to force this kind of switch, I'd love to hear it.
I'm sure there's other things in my life I need to work on, too.
