Featherlite Optima Review – The Best Chair I’ve Ever Used

Since I sit for most of my day doing work on personal and professional projects, I have always wanted a damn good chair. I have tried different ones, but here’s the best: Featherlite Optima!

It has lumbar support and the best thing about it is that it has an adjustment to pull forward the seating cushion. Since I am almost 6 ft tall, I have long legs and in most of the chairs the front portion of my thighs always hang in the air. But with Featherlite Optima, I can pull forward the seating area which helps me rest my thighs all the way upto my knees and is very comfortable.

It comes with a very nice head rest. It also looks damn professional with chrome legs. The wheels are smooth and the chair moves very freely. The seating area is 100% horizontal to the ground. Many chairs have errors in manufacturing and will have 1 to 2 degree inclination which is not good for your back. I checked with the iPhone spirit level and it is 100% parallel to the floor line.

How to Kill “Work” for Ever and be Eternally Happy

freedom

Dream jobs don’t exist. Period.

You can get jobs which make you money, challenge you, grow you, help you reach your highest potential – but work is still unwanted, tiring and a necessary thing we have to do anyway.

You can do a “great job” in your work but the concept of work and job in itself is not that great. If it was, then you will not look forward to the weekend. You would look forward to Mondays!

There is no point in hiding this truth and lying to ourselves that we love what we do for a living.

We as cavemen used to hunt in the forest for food, or go to the rivers with spears to catch fish – and there was/is nothing to get excited about that “job”.

We are not so different today.

We work so that we can survive. Nothing else. Its just that with evolution and technology we have created a 1000 different jobs through division of labour.

So accept it. You don’t want to be an employee. And You don’t want to be a boss either. What you really want is… TO BE THE OWNER. Have enough passive income so that your monthly expenses are taken care of – and some more for fun.

But to OWN things and get passive income you need capital. Capital comes from savings – years of it. [Continue reading]
