Show Notes

In this Shower Thoughts episode we talk about fortune, the role it plays in our day-to-day lives, and whether wealth itself affects our relationship with it.

Key discussion points in this episode:

  • Fortune doesn’t play as big of a role in the outcome of our lives compared to people in less privileged settings
  • What does a ‘bad morning’ entail in different countries?
  • The nature of our lives compared to those who are most fortunate is much more similar compared to those who are least fortunate
  • Should billionaires be donating more money?
  • How does one’s relationship with wealth change as they ascend the wealth ladder?
