WHAT IS TODAY’S TREASURE?
A collection of $100 or less purchases that some of today’s influential and successful people use to make their lives better or more enjoyable.
HOW’D YOU DISCOVER IT?
I regularly listen to “The Tim Ferriss Show” podcast. I noticed that one of his more common questions to his guests is asking what they own that makes their lives better (and is under $100). Since this is a recurring question, I figured there might be a written collection of these somewhere. After a quick Google search, I found it!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT IT?
1. The variety of world-class performers. A world-class DJ. A founder of a cryptocurrency. A billionaire investor. A columnist. An actor. All sorts of people. Not all names might be recognizable, but they’re all “world-class” in some way, shape, or form.
2. The variety of responses. Everyone has a different response, and this makes the collection fun to read. What matters for one person might not matter for another.
HOW MIGHT THIS BE USEFUL FOR ME?
1. Discovering new things. Life tends to be a bubble, so it’s nice to see and explore what’s out there. It can be exciting to discover something new and potentially life-changing!
2. Getting an idea of how people think. Some of the responses are short. Others are longer. For most of the responses, you get an idea of why their items are meaningful in their lives. The thought behind some of the answers are profound.
ANY FINAL COMMENTS?
This isn’t a complete collection in the sense that there have been more responses to the question since it was published. There might be a more current list out there, but I think this one provides a good snapshot of the varied responses. It’s interesting to note that value and fulfillment can be found in ways we did not expect!
