The Big Mac Index is published by The Economist as an informal and light-hearted way of measuring the purchasing power parity (PPP) between two currencies and provides a rule of thumb to see the relative cost of the same item in different countries.
If you want to buy a Big Mac, look how much it is in Switzerland compared to Egypt. How to use this? Think of retirement. If you are in the US with $1 take it to Egypt and it goes 3.5 times as far ($1 in the US is like $3.5 in Egypt).
We love organizing educational and expansive experiences in Thailand! My first visit was in 1989. Wow, have things changed since then!
When is the best time to go to Thailand? When you are hungry. When you are bored. When you need a friend. When you are lonely. When you are tired. When you need a change of pace. When you need an updraft. GOLDZONE + Thailand = MAGIC. Now is the best time, RIGHT NOW!
We look forward to seeing you at your next GOLDZONE Experience in Thailand!
If you are a nasty person who is very unattractive on the inside, money can buy you the appearance of love, and someone to spend your time with who is a real beauty.
Studies show that beyond a minimum amount of money to meet your minimum needs for food, clothing, shelter, entertainment, education and some leisure time, money’s utility to make us happy diminishes. What money can buy you is control over your time. From that point on you are free to choose how you spend your time. If you are like most people in Richland, living in the Rat Race you suffer from Time Poverty.
The real luxury in life is the time do what you want with the people you love.
If you were an architect or a doctor, you would know the nomenclature of architecture or medicine. If you are not a doctor, you would pick up some of the terminologies of medicine from your family doctor, the media or friends, however, you wouldn’t have a full command of it unless you were very interested and committed to years of study. Even within the field of medicine, there are specialties that have their own terminologies. Yikes!
Misunderstood words have an enormous impact on our comprehension of a subject. Many of us feel stupid when we encounter a word we do not understand or cannot pronounce.
In order to become a Master of any subject area requires that we develop an in-depth understanding of the nomenclature of that particular field.
