If you lost everything, would you be okay?

Around 2 years ago, I read an interview with Ryan Holiday. I cannot locate it, but the gist was:

"If I lost everything and had to start from scratch, I would be fine. Really."

When I was 19, I interned at a financial planning company. I met with the manager/boss of the branch in my first week.

As I understood from others, he had a pretty high-income. Somewhere in the $250,000 - $450,000 range. He also had a PHD in philosophy, which at the time sounded like the greatest thing in the world. 

He told me: "If I was randomly parachuted out of a plane and landed anywhere in the world, I could create wealth. Anywhere, with my skills and philosophy background, I know I could make something happen."

A new language

On My Ramblings

No, I didn't get lazy with the last one but given the fact that I only know a bit of VB which really isn't a programming language I figured I needed at least one programming language amongst my choices.

All of the options have their pros and cons for me. In the long run I want to move to Brazil (even if only for a couple of years) but it might not be feasible yet. So although it would be practical I also have some time left to learn the language.

Russian is just because I have so many russian friends and not all of them are fluent in English. Plus let's face it, it's cool if you can sound like a spy no matter how old you are :)

Mandarin.. I really don't have a reason for that except that it's been on my list of things I would like to learn for ages now. Perhaps I should just do it.
