“Health is wealth”. Really? There are few differences, but then many more similarities, too. The value of health is realized when one loses it. Many of us are born healthy. It may not be the same with wealth. Many of us have to work hard to acquire wealth. However, along the way, there are some mistakes that we make that prevent us from accumulating wealth.
I had a very close encounter with a critical health situation. This not just allowed me to think about the virtues that we are blessed with, I thought of translating some of the lessons to wealth – or broadly personal finance.
Here is a collection of my lessons learnt while spending time in the ICU.
Amit considers himself a lifetime student of the subject of investment management and personal finance. In the quest to know more, he reads and writes; he listens and talks; basically trying to understand from the many teachers all around to be a better student. He also happens to write articles and also conducts training programs and workshops. Amit has written a book – “Riding The Roller Coaster – Lessons from financial market cycles we repeatedly forget”. He lives in Mumbai with his wife Nandita and two kids Meera and Dev.
