There’s only one problem with it. It’s stupid! Why is getting a job so dumb? Because you only get paid when you’re working. Have you never considered that it might be better to be paid even when you’re not working? Who taught you that you could only earn income while working? Some other brainwashed employee perhaps?

You only get paid a fraction of the real value you generate. Your real salary may be more than triple what you’re paid, but most of that money you’ll never see. It goes straight into other people’s pockets.

Smart people build systems that generate income 24/7, especially passive income. This can include starting a business, building a web site, becoming an investor, or generating royalty income from creative work. The system delivers the ongoing value to people and generates income from it, and once it’s in motion, it runs continuously whether you tend to it or not. From that moment on, the bulk of your time can be invested in increasing your income (by refining your system or spawning new ones) instead of merely maintaining your income.

I began to think on the job. I knew that thinking and employment
don’t mix, but I couldn’t stop myself.

a collection of wisdom

It is a great happiness when two good minds meet, both cultivated and with such difference of learning as to excite each other’s curiosity, and such similarity as to understand each other’s allusions in the touch-and-go of conversation. They make each other strong and confident… The unspoken part of this conversation is the most valuable. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

the nine sites i use everyday ~ what site can’t you live without?

i had yahoo mail for years (with my.yahoo as home). i have a hotmail address (purely for messenger) which i hate and use as my spam address. i use Gmail. it is simply the bestand if you want: email, multi-city weather, rss feeds, stocks, horoscope, quotes + anything else you could possibly want in a homepage it’s iGoogle… so simple and customizable, I mean, c’mon it’s google.

Google Suggest
don’t you wish google knew what you wanted to find before you finished typing? (it does)

you love it or you hate it or both. i’m both. i love what it does. i hate where it’s early venture capital came from (hint: the C*A) and what it could be used for (think about all the photos you are tagged in, now think about the big brotheresque facial recognition software that is being developed… put on your tinfoil hat and combine)
