Without a doubt.
That the McDonald's double cheeseburger.
Is the best cheeseburger in the world.
I was watching a documentary on TV that talked about how the urgency for reducing our global carbon footprint and its impact on the climate.
I believe that as temperatures rise - to intolerable levels of 40 and 50 degrees Celsius - a huge proportion of our land mass will turn to deserts (as compared to over 20% currently). This implies a significant land shortage, which will becomes even more pronounced as the global population increases. This land shortage doesn't only affect arable land but also inhabitable land i.e. residential housing, retail malls, parks, office spaces, etc. As a result, land and property will start to rise dramatically and render the cost of housing increasingly inaccessible to the mass market. The rich-poor gap widens and home ownership - which once used to be a financially serviceable amenity turns into a luxury product available only to a privileged few who can afford it.
Reaffirming point #36 in my forty takeaways last year.
Most of the people (including the closest ones) around me keep trying to tell me what's good for me or how I should use my money and resources without really wanting to listen to what I really want to do with them.
Their ambitions are manifested in the monologue they have with me on whatsapp / wechat. I can tell that they want me to 'agree' with them. And agreement means I nod and concur.
My points of view, my current circumstances (whether emotional or financial) are irrelevant.
Never judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes. So why should anyone impose what they think I should do just because it has worked for them, without truly being in my current position and going through what I have gone through? It's really absurd that these same people claim to have high EQ but they'd never really demonstrated empathy and asked me the simple question of: "What are your plans?"
