Why We Are Wired to Do Everything Wrong With Money & The Meaning of Time
Have you ever asked yourself, “Is it ever too late?” If you don’t set your social and professional course early in life, will you miss out? Parents often worry that if their kids don’t get on the right track early on, they will have trouble later on. This episode begins with some interesting and optimistic research on why this worry may be unfounded. Source: Susan Krauss Whitbourne author of “The Search for Fulfillment” (https://amzn.to/3bXWqTF) We all mistakes with our money - we can’t help it, we are wired that way. That’s according to research conducted by my first guest today - Brad Klontz. Brad is a financial psychologist, a certified financial planner, an associate professor at Creighton University's Heider College of Business in Nebraska and author of the book Money Mammoth: Unlocking the Secrets of Financial Psychology to Break from the Herd and Avoid Extinction (https://amzn.to/2LHWU5h). Listen as he discusses why people have such trouble with money, why we don’t save enough and how to get on a path that will make you feel good about your financial life. You’ll find his advice is pretty easy and painless. Where does all the lost and unclaimed luggage from airplanes go? Not only is this an interesting story, it turns out you can shop online and buy things left on airplanes and some of it is really amazing. https://www.unclaimedbaggage.com/ I find it so interesting that no one can really define time, yet we know intuitively what time is and we can measure it very precisely. It wasn’t always that way though. For most of history, it wasn’t really important to know EXACTLY what time it was - until the railroads came along. Listen to my discussion on the fascinating history of time with Joseph Mazur professor emeritus of mathematics at Marlboro College and author of the book, The Clock Mirage: Our Myth of Measured Time (https://amzn.to/3oJ8qvI).

Thank You!</span></p> <p><a href="https://anchor.fm/theaudiobookspodcast/support"><span style="font-weight: 400;">https://anchor.fm/theaudiobookspodcast/support</span></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Summary:</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The world takes us at our own valuation. It believes in the man who believes in himself, but it has little use for the timid man, the one who is never certain of himself; who cannot rely on his own judgment, who craves advice from others, and is afraid to go ahead on his own account. -from "The Rulers of Destiny" The preeminent self-help expert of the early 20th century and a forerunner of Dale Carnegie and Norman Vincent Peale, Stephen R. Covey and Anthony Robbins, Marden penned numerous motivation books that galvanized the public. In this insightful and motivating little book, first published in 1901 and just as enlightening today, he explores the importance of mental discipline to our happiness and success. Topics covered include: .training the will ."the wills, won'ts, and can'ts" .what is worse than rashness .conquerors of fortune .concentrated energy .persistent purpose .and more. Also available from Cosimo Classics: Marden's Friendship, Cheerfulness as a Life Power, Do It to a Finish, and two-volume Pushing to the Front. American writer and editor ORISON SWETT MARDEN (1850-1924) was born in New England and studied at Boston University and Andover Theological Seminary. In 1897, he founded Success Magazine.</span></p> --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/theaudiobookspodcast/support
