Money is a symbol that falsely displays success, intelligence, and impact upon our world. “This spending of the best part of one's life earning money in order to enjoy a questionable liberty during the least valuable part of it reminds me of the Englishman who went to India to make a fortune first" (Fitz's abbreviated Walden, pages 41-42) Life needs to be spent enjoying our passions. Most people in our world make a simple bug crucial mistake of working for money instead of working for joy. If you cannot truthfully say that you love what you do every day when you wake up, you need a change of scenery.
Education is an aspect of life that makes us better people. If we do not understand what we are trying to do, we cannot do it successfully. “I cannot but think that if we had more true wisdom in these respects, not only less education would be needed, because, forsooth, more would already have been acquired, but the pecuniary expense of getting an education would in a great measure vanish.” (Fitz's abbreviate Walden, page 36) If we invest on our early lives to become enlightened and knowledgeable, it will help us to become better people, and make the world a better place. No matter what the financial commitment is, money should be uses for something and allocating it towards our future will make us better people.
Work is a measure of endurance and passion. In life, we sometimes get caught up with making sure that we are making the maximum amount of money that we can make. If we have enough money to live a happy life outside of work, then the rest should be a bonus. Of all of the most important things in life, loving what you do should be the absolute number one priority. If you are enjoying yourself each and every day and have yourself set up for the future, your life should be considered complete. “In short, I am convinced, both by faith and experience, that to maintain one's self on this earth is not a hardship but a pastime, if we will live simply and wisely; as the pursuits of the simpler nations are still the sports of the more artificial”- (Fitz's abbreviated Walden, page 49)
