I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

Question of Net Worth vs. Cash Flow???

When you have this burning question in your mind that is bothering you it showed that you are still earning an income from your job and NOT yet fully retired. Right?

High net worth but lacking of cash flow; they may have to eat grass very soon if they still insist on hanging to their high net worth status!


  1. The true measure of your wealth is how much you would be worth if you lost all your money

  2. How many folks under-estimate the risks of their human asset and early write-off their human asset?

    Early dementia in their early 60s and brain stroke patients are getting younger these days.

  4. DW seems to have given some profound meaning. Read again.

    1. We are worth what we are paid for our service provided by our human asset. Once we can't provide any service of any kind we are worthless unless we are covered by income assurance for life.

    2. The true measure of your wealth is how much you would be worth if you lost all your money
      which one?
      1. goodness of heart - short term feel good factor but doesn't feed my stomach.
      2. skills in hunting/growing food - no spiritual feel good factor but feed good and feed my stomach.
      3. got family to do the hunting/growing food - feel warm and feed my stomach but no intrinsic self worth
      4. got staff to do the hunting/growing food - you win lah, organise people to work and take a portion of their gains.
      5. service through your own human asset to others in exchange for food - see cw8888 uncle answers.
      6. the weight of your immortal soul - eh... are you lost? come to financial blog for?

    3. SMK,

      When I saw the quote, I knew it did not come from the writer.

      The writer has since shared it came from his Buddhist teacher ;)

      Those of us with some Buddhist training can answer by quoting Huineng's:

      When alive, one keeps sitting without lying down.
      When dead, one lies without sitting up.
      In both cases, a set of stinking bones!
      What has it to do with the great lesson of life?

      After parroting Huineng, I better keep my fists clenched. Least Zhu Di will come and cut off my index finger!


  5. What i can decipher is, because physical wealth cannot bring to after life, is what you have cultivate that is important. How you treat people, care for people, help, advise, educate, build, train etc and how you carry yourself. And this can be measured by people who remember u, cry for u, praise u, laugh with you, after you are gone. This are the true wealth after your death. Not much about how much money you left. :P

    1. Hi Cory,

      Well said, my friend. I could not have put it any better. Lots of so-called 'wealthy' people actually suffer from a sense of 'emptiness' in their lives.

    2. now that that is fleshed out, it sounds way better.
