When we want to leave a legacy
In the previous blog post, I told you about our willingness to invest in order to gain a return on investment. Is this process possible with time? Let’s have a look and do some comparisons. The gross world product would be, according to Wikipedia, around 80 trillion US dollars. According to Worldometers’ numbers, with 5 billion people who are of working age, we could have a maximum of 21 trillion hours per year. But let’s focus to the time that we can personally invest for our personal profit, before setting up a group that would invest for a common profit.
So, you could invest around 240,000 hours of your life between the ages of 15 and 70. Let’s say there are two options available to you. The first is to enjoy life, but to do this, you must invest this time into your basic needs; food, house and clothes. The higher your needs, the more time they will take. So, in order to reduce the required time, you need to also reduce your needs. It is from this principle where voluntary simplicity comes into play. Simple needs for a simple life.
