What is new rich (NR)?
Happy new year! Wish you a happy and creative 2019! How would you design your new year 2019? Speaking of new, have you ever heard of the term new rich (NR)? It’s a word coined by Tim Ferriss who is living a new rich lifestyle. What the hell is new rich lifestyle? It’s a totally different lifestyle designed by entrepreneurial and creative minds that provoke people to rethink the way they live and ask the question “How would you like to design your life?”
The new rich is idea-rich, time-rich, experience-rich and relationship-rich. What makes the new rich people different is that they design their desired lifestyle instead of living by default, and they prioritise time for important relationships and dreams.
Tim Ferriss’s The 4-Hour Workweek is a good book that explains clearly what exactly new rich is about. The book was written 10 years ago but its impact has lasted so long that it has inspired many people to redesign their lives. The key to have a nomad life like Tim Ferriss is outsource, outsource and outsource! Tim lists some other new rich people in his book:
Another book by David Moore called The New Rich: Escape the job you hate by starting a business the world will love is one more good example who challenges the mainstream lifestyle and design a different way of living. Everyone can create the life they want so why not be adventurous and do what you want. What is the one thing that you want to do the most in 2019? My answer is I want to write a book. Of course I have many other things want to do as well. Yet, it’s more effective to have a focus. Prioritise the top one and get it done first.
How would you like to live your 2019 and the rest of your life?
