Life’s Two Great Foundational Investing Opportunities: The Two Key Investments in Building a Meaningful Life!

Why Was I Not (What About You?) Told These Obvious Truths at Some Point in My Many Years of Education?

Reminiscent of the first line of Paul Simon’s 1973 Kodachrome song:

When I think back on all the crap I learned in high school it’s a wonder I can think at all!

Why were/are we not taught about investments being 1) greater than merely making more money and 2) Time being the essence of Life and available to invest to make the future Better? For if we are not told and taught in school, we may never learn the great historical truisms and proverbs (along with many other basic and practical day-to-day important truths).

In·vest·ment /in?ves(t)m?nt/ The most common definition?

“Action or process of investing money for profit or material result.”

But a dramatically better description? “An act of devoting time, effort, or energy to a particular undertaking with the expectation of a worthwhile result.” Oxford Languages

The important difference in meaning being we understand some things are more important and long-lasting than money so that “investing” should rightly be thought of as whatever we can do to make for a richer/more prosperous life.
