Lambos, private jets, custom suits, guys yelling into their iPhones telling you to buy some overpriced sophistic crap. We’ve all had our IG feeds flooded with this nonsense. And sadly, more and more people are equating it with success. But you can look at dozens of people who have acquired all those things, but are still miserable. People who’ve reached life’s supposed summit, but who still display deep, grating, soul discontentment.
If we don’t lay the proper foundation for success, the weight of whatever we build will eventually crack and crumble due to a shoddy foundation. You IG is telling you what success is. But not only is that feed WRONG, most of what is pumped out by the business/entrepreneur/coaching/startup world is WRONG. Afterall, what does it profit a man to gain the whole world but forfit his soul? There is an approach to business that is not built on bragging about what you have, but building what you love (and even more importantly, understanding why).
This is what Muthonomics is about. A perspective to life/work balance that starts with contentment, then mixes a ton of tactical ingredients (like resolution, honor, discipline, industry, courage) with deep, vital understanding of tacit concepts, like free markets, humility, liberty, Austrian economic theory, customer behavior, supply and demand, monotony and sticktuitiveness.
