In Chapter 7 of Steal like an artist the author Austin Kleon tells us that in order to get things done we need to be boring. Sometimes we do things that other people do and that can get played out. In this chapter he also talks about money. He tells us that we need to save as much as we can and I have to agree with him. Some people want to spend on things that arnt important or necessary. Am guilty of doing that. But in order to have valuable things later on in life we need to learn how to save. Most of us have jobs and we follow a routine. For example, am a waitress/owner at my job.
The concepts throughout this book are simple but they test self-control and patience, which in our world is uncommon because of the “want it now” attitude. Ramsey talks about how “personal finance is 80 percent behavior and only 20 percent head knowledge” (ix). This main idea is something Ramsey talks about and references throughout the whole book. Another main idea or as Ramsey calls it a “motto” that’s on each page at the bottom is “If you live like no one else, later you can live like no one else” (5). This is the theme that he refers back to on

Herbert A. Simon, a Nobel laureate, suggested that a decision maker did not always make the best financial decision because of limited educational resources and personal inclinations. Because of this, we seek the advice of others to make better financial decisions. In David’s Chiltons The Wealthy Barber Returns, he explains why saving first, spending less, and investing your money now will help secure your financial future. In my opinion, the advice he gives are simple but well founded. After reading this book, I will put my credit/debit cards in the freezer, set up an automatic savings plan with Tangerine, and invest 5% of my pre-tax income. Even though you are probably confused as to why I’m doing this, hopefully everything will be clear
This relates to different matters. First of all, the kids of wealthy parents, should not depend on their parent’s money, and they should learn how to become independent on their own.

Being rich is one thing, staying rich is a totally different category from what I learned in this book. Knowing what is more important to you is also part being disciplined, because that way you will not spend money on worthless items like so many people with high incomes do, and they end up not accumulating
Terrorism is a very big part of today’s average life and is only becoming an even bigger factor. Never has this been more apparent than after the recent terrorist attacks on Paris and San Bernardino. Now, almost daily we are presented some type of terrorist act that takes the life of many people. In response, many people talk about avenging those who died. However few actually do respond to the terrorists with more than words. I believe that this can be traced to a theory called “Diffusion of Responsibility” and the way to overcome this has already been shown to us, but we just haven’t noticed it. If we plan to overcome the many terrorist groups that take so many lives a year, we have to become aware of all the concepts in this text and use them to our advantage. These concepts include personal responsibility, not doubting your ability as an individual, and finding the correct combination of impulsiveness, logical reasoning and gut feelings.
