I will be back soon with the remaining posts to discuss the five top changes I have made to improve my financial life but in the meantime I wanted to post something a little lighter and discuss some of the media I am consuming presently. If this proves fun, maybe it is something I can repeat on a semi-regular basis.
What am I reading?
At the moment I am re-reading Your Money or Your Life by Joe Dominguez & Vicki Robin. I read this for the first time about a year ago when I began the journey to change my financial life and it had a huge impact. It had such a large impact that I have recommended it to several people and as one of my new year’s resolutions committed to reading it again in 2018.
What am I listening to?
I have really gotten into podcasts over the past year. My current favorite podcast is Choose FI. I find this podcast to be incredibly helpful, producing many great tips and life hacks as well as pointing me in the direction of other great blogs, podcasts, books etc. Once I stumbled upon it, it took me a bit to binge listen through from the first episode to the present and now that I have done so, I miss having a new episode at the ready every time I open my podcast player.
What am I watching?
I did not intend for this post to be all about finance but to be more of a look into what media I am consuming. In looking at the above two responses, I guess I it shows that I do consume quite a bit of financially focused media. What I am watching currently changes that a little bit. I just started watching Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan on Prime Video. In my first sitting, I managed to run through 5 of the 8 episodes before needing a brain break. It is an excellent show and I have really enjoyed it. I have read all of Tom Clancy’s books that exist in the Jack Ryan universe and found the show to be a great new addition to that body of work. My wife is interested in watching as well so that will be a great test to see if the material stands up when viewed by someone unfamiliar with the books or even the previous movies.
