Yeah I mean I wouldn't say no to being a billionaire or a hundred millionaire but I'm not trying to be a billionaire/hundred millionaire cause its not really realistic for me.

I'm just not convinced yet that you have to try and spend every bit of your money before you die. I still have to think about this one. I did like alot of concepts from his book though. I liked the idea of time-buckets instead of traditional bucket lists, because certain activities you get more enjoyment out of in your youth than in old age...And if I didnt 100% agree or like certain ideas, they were definitely pretty good to think about ideas from a different perspective.

You have 0 once you die, does he mean making sure he has nothing in overall wealth before he dies? If so that's pretty easy to do, you can give it kids or donate it all off before. I don't really get it. You can just set up some system with a person you trust to spend it after your dead, as many rich people do. Andrew Carnegie is still spending his money from beyond the grave for example.

The point is to spend your money while you are alive trying to squeeze the maximum joy out of it, the vast majority of wealthy people die with too much money in their bank accounts and keep working to accumulate for no good reason besides momentum and being used to it.

It's a dumb bourgeois fantasy. You never know when you are going to die, nothing is protecting you, especially not your wealth. Even fitness gurus die from heart attacks, cancer or accidents. Wanna die with zero? Start getting to zero now.

Its also bullshit because even if you are not a big spender you have a certain mentality about making more money that will not change. There isn't going to be a point where you will just fuck off into the woods and not think about trying to get into some investments beyond the 10% a year EFTs or whatever you think you'll be content doing.

You're not going to be much more free than you are now because freedom is more of a state of being than anything else. The mental grind doesn't end just because you get to become a millionaire. Growth is addictive, especially when your life is rather empty outside of business pursuits. You will do like everyone else who gets to a certain point wealth wise and have a will and give your money after you die because you will not know when death comes and will want to have as much as possible in the event that you will survive, even with a terminal illness.

yeah, i still dont get it...because as loco just said you can't actually control the point of death. I guess you could calculate the mean/median time until death and then spend a % of your wealth every year, starting high and regressively becoming less over time, and it would sorta work out. I cant imagine too many others wanting that kind of lifeplan as most would want to give a decent chunk of it to their kids or do philanthropy instead.

y dont u just read the book then lol. OR DOES IT HAVE TO BE 500 dollar communist book written by PHD or some other twat for you to buy it!!!

he says die with zero means try to get close to zero as possible cant really die with zero cause u dont know when u gonna die.

regarding inheritance he introduces the idea of an early inheritance. ex. if you are 30 years older than your kids, and you die at 80 the money ur kids get at 50 will be less useful than if u gave it to them when you are 65 and they are 35 which makes sense. etc etc.he says the same thing with charity.
