Musicians and Money-the finer things
“The best things in life are not things.”
In a 2000 National Opinion Research Center poll, half of all Americans declared they would trade some of their income for more time with friends and family.
As our standard of living has risen, basic core values have been replaced by dollar signs. It seems since 1957, the percentage of people who described their lives as “very happy” has significantly dropped every year.
There is a deep interest, particularly in the current economic climate, to clarify our lives and living. To make a simpler, more meaningful life for ourselves.
There are ways to reduce your expenses to the point of having more time for creativity and dreams. All it takes is a cognisant recognition that to spend less means you are earning more- more time for your art, more time for creativity, more time to enjoy nature, more time for making music.
The best things can be readily discovered when mindful earning and spending become part of the way you conduct your life.
