This is the most important section of the website. When we get right down to it the most important thing in life is finding happiness. We can’t be happy every moment of our life, but I think the main goal should be to try and find as much of it as we can. We all have heard that money cannot buy happiness, yet due in large part to the media’s influence we do not believe it. The big challenge of this entire blog is to start doing what we really want with our lives now. Maybe not all at once, but little by little as much as we can.
There are many popular suggestions for achieving this such as: finding a career you love, starting your own business, becoming a minimalist, embracing a frugal lifestyle, living a material lifestyle, and many more. We will examine many of these ideas in depth to try to find out what they really mean. There is not one typical lifestyle that is best for everyone. The key is finding the lifestyle that suites you and makes you happy.

I found these books to be very powerful resources. Browne’s book How I found Freedom in and Unfree World gives readers several techniques to purse their goals through common obstacle. Robin’s book, Your Money Or Your Life questions the 40 hour workweek and expected retirement age of 65. It highlights the allure to living within your means, and how that can allow you the freedom to have more time to enjoy the things most important to you.
