仰慕这本书已经一年有余。之前读了一些，但是始终没有读进去，也就没有读下去。With the experience with William and Michael, it seems it is easier to follow now.
There are three major elements which are time, money and location mater in this concept of “New Rich”.
Being financially rich and having the ability to live like a millionaire are fundamentally two different things.
It begins with the different goals. What a really inspiring comparison.
Deferrer: To work when you want to.
New Rich: To have others work for you.
Deferrer: To retire early and young.
New Rich: To distribute recovery periods and adventures (mini-retirements) throughout life on a regular basis and recognize that inactivity is not the goal. Doing that which excites you is.
Deferrer: To reach the big pay-off, whether IPO, acquisition, retirement, or other pot of gold.
New Rich: To think big but ensure payday comes every day: cash flow first, big payday second.
我现在时常会有钱进账，但是我并不觉得我觉得我的钱在流动（flow）方面的performance can be better. Should have a serious think of this and do something.每天都要有一定的被动收入。
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
I can’t give you a surefire formula for success, but I can give you a formula for failure: try to please everybody all the time.
--HERBERT BAYARD SWOPE
Everything popular is wrong.
当我发觉自己很不一样，没有很多朋友，大部分人都畏惧我的时候，我也会反思：Is there anything going wrong with me. 但是昨天看到马克吐温大师的这句话，我瞬间就松了一口气。人们当然不喜欢跟自己不一样的东西，看着不顺眼。可是我的特殊经历告诉我，我未来的人生应该怎么过。我很清醒，绝不妥协。I know what I want and how I want. And I am and will just go by my way. That’s it.
心里有个小小的声音在说，要是十年前就读到这本书该多好。可是认真一想，十年前即使读了这本书，肯定也无法领略其中的真谛，也不知道自己应该如何去根据自己的情况去做lifestyle design. 或许现在正是the right time. 正如之前一段很火的微信段子说的Everyone has its time zone. 我想说Everything has its time zone.
新认识的两个经济学或者说理财方面的概念：相对收入与绝对收入（relative income & absolute income）.
Are you better off than you were one year ago, one month ago, or one week ago?
What do you want?
What is the opposite of happiness? Sadness? What is the opposite of happiness? Sadness? No. Just as love and hate are two sides of the same coin, so are happiness and sadness... The opposite of love is indifference, and the opposite of happiness is - here's the clincher - boredom...
The question you should be asking isn't 'What do I want?' or 'What are my goals?' but 'What would excite me?'... Living like a millionaire requires doing interesting things and not just owning enviable things."
