Chasing Money

“Chase your passions and money will come. Chase money and you may never find your passions.” ~ Colin Wright

We all need to make ends meet, but beyond that, chasing after the green stuff doesn’t make us happier.

“Rachel” took my creativity workshop after she’d made a bundle working at Apple and felt absolutely empty. A buddhist priest friend of mine told me he gets most of his donations to build orphanages in third world countries from wealthy people who feel like their lives are meaningless otherwise.

Research by the Nobel laureate psychologist/economist Daniel Kahneman and Princeton economist Angus Deaton found that happiness maxes out around $75,000 in the United States. Additional studies reveal that people are happier when they spend their money on other people rather than only themselves.

Of course we all need money to live, but chasing money for money’s sake can take you off track from your true passions and leave you feeling hollow. Simplify your life, do what you love, and the money will follow.

Chasing Material Things
“Stop chasing what your mind wants and you’ll get what your soul needs.” ~ KushandWizdom

Many of us think we’ll be happy if we live in a big house, wear brand-named clothes, drive a new car, and stuff our closets full of shoes. But that’s simply chasing things to fill the hole in your sole (forgive the pun).

Research shows that we’re happier when we spend money on positive experiences—like vacations—rather than material things. So the next time you feel like redecorating your living room or upgrading your car, think about flying to France or taking a road trip instead.

Chasing Work
“Beware the barrenness of a busy life.” ~ Socrates

Americans put in the longest work hours and get the shortest paid vacation time in the developed world, including Japan. Those of us “lucky” enough to have jobs have added another day to our work week because we now check work emails and calls from home. It’s no wonder we try to stuff everything we can’t do at work into our off hours.

But the second regret of the dying is that they wished they didn’t work so hard. Even though it’s countercultural, research shows that taking breaks leads to greater productivity than putting in long hours. You come back refreshed and able to do more in less time when you give yourself a chance to recharge.

So instead of cramming more activities into an already too busy life to make up for lost time, try slowing down, meditating, doing yoga, taking walks, having deep talks with friends, keeping a journal, and being out in nature.  It will make you happier and healthier too.

Gentlewoman magazine reports on scholarships for women

Le 2 août 2017, 04:40 dans Humeurs 0

An international and inter-colonial scholarship scheme for women, on lines similar to that which the late Cecil Rhodes in his will laid down for the benefit of young men, was drawn up some time ago by an American woman; and already (according to the “Gentlewoman”) it has every prospect of permanent success LPG M6.

Mme. Thayer, president of the American circle of the Lyceum Club, is the authoress of the scheme, and is making it her life-work. Some time ago she placed it before the Education committee of the Society of American Women in London, of which she was then Chairman.

The scheme, a post-graduate study of two years at Oxford, Cambridge, or London Universities by distinguished students of their own universities at home, was received by the Committee with enthusiasm, which applauded particularly the “reciprocity side” to the project, which is to send English women for a two year post graduate study to America or Canada, to the Johns Hopkins University at Baltimore, for instance, or the M’Gill University in Canada. The scheme is intended to embrace later all the colonies exactly as Cecil Rhodes’s scheme does, but it is America’s privilege to make the start, and already a successful beginning has been made.

The Society of American Women in London (says the “Gentlewoman”) has pledged itself to a two years’ income for one scholar from the district of Columbia; while Mme. Thayer has herself undertaken to raise one scholarship in perpetuity for her own State of Louisiana NEAUVIA.

The Education Committee of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs in America has promised to endow one scholarship in perpetuity, and has recommended its general body to take up these scholarships as one line of its work. The General Federation numbers 800,000 women members.

There are forty-six States in America; Mme. Thayer hopes that each State Federation will endow one scholarship, and a second she hopes to succeed in getting through the munificence of Americans at home and abroad, in large or small donations, thus providing for ninety-two American scholarships in all. A sum of £7,000 endows a scholarship in perpetuity and means an allowance of £250 a year for a post-graduate course of two years.

As Mme. Thayer is handicapped through want of means her progress is all the more astonishing. The authoress of this great educational scheme is backed by a unique experience in teaching nearly all over the world. She is descended from a distinguished stock of New England people, lineal descendant of Roger Williams, the founder of Rhode Island, and a connection of Longfellow’s,The polyu campus is located right in the heart of Hong Kong. Students have access to a wide range of facilities and services so they can make the most out of their student life.
