RETIREMENT IS OFTEN DIFFERENT FROM PERSON TO PERSON. THE IDEAL RETIRED LIFE IS THE ABILITY TO CHOOSE OUR RETIREMENT LIFESTYLE

I believe retirement is when a person switches their primary focus from actively earning a living to self-realisation.

In other words, when someone chooses one’s personal goals and aspirations.

For many people, retirement means balancing their new lifestyle with enjoyable activities and doing something they truly love.

Lifestyle income ideas are the dynamic process of preparing ourselves for the change of economic circumstances, personal needs and for enjoying the opportunities of financial freedom.

To meet different objectives, the first step is to get better at money management.

Day to day expenses, travel, training for new a new career, or beginning a new business venture require a basic good management system.

I am on a journey on sharing with others the benefits of getting the necessary skills for practical and useful ideas to increase their cash flow through Lifestyle Income Ideas.

Book Review – Leonardo Da Vinci by W. Isaacson

Planet, Universe, Vitruvian Man

Study without desire spoils the memory, and it retains nothing that it takes in. – Leonardo da Vinci

After reading the bestsellers books of Walter Isaacson on Steve Jobs and Albert Einstein, I came to appreciate how talented Mr Isaacson is as an author.

In this magnificent biography of Leonardo Da Vinci, Mr Isaacson shows how, from Leonardo’s genius skills, we can get inspired, develop our potential, discover with passionate curiosity, careful observation, and imagination.

I took the following excerpts from the book as a reminder of what Leonardo Da Vinci did during his lifetime as well as the skills and great ideas from this amazing person. I hope you enjoy it just as much.

How Do Other Countries Spoil Mom on Mother’s Day?

When my husband and I got married, I knew we would be living over 8,000 miles away from my family, back in the 1980s keeping in touch was not easy.

The person I missed most was my mom. I managed, however, to keep our relationship close and lines of communication open, but since I lived 25 hours away from her, and, at the time, with a small family, and no funds to visit regularly, I missed a lot of special moment with her.

I am originally from Mexico, John from England, but when we got married, John was working in Australia so we started our married life and family in Melbourne, leaving our families far behind.

How Can A Wall Reduce Illegal Immigration?

President Donald Trump wants to build a “big, beautiful wall” along the rest of the 2,000 miles southern border between the U.S. and Mexico to keep out dangerous, undocumented immigrants, but will a ‘beautiful’ wall be the best way to reduce illegal immigration?

The 2,000 miles wall consists of fences, concrete barricades, gunboats, drones and SUVs. It includes uninhabited desert, major cities and the Grande River.

Back in 2000 my family and I decided to spend some time in San Diego, California while conducting business in Tijuana, Mexico. As our sons grew up speaking English, San Diego was a convenient location at the time.

We were among the many people crossing the border every day. People cross the border for work, school or holidays. But returning to the US was stressful.
