Oil price continues to fall, perhaps to a level where it is even cheaper than bottled water…..

Here in Phuket, I sat on the beach with my friend Josie and we got chatting with a British investment banker who worked in Singapore. He had just quit his job and is starting a water business in Phuket, selling expensive water filers to home owners that cost several thousand U$ per unit.

Isn’t it risky? (Though I bought one that costs as much for our Phuket house 18 months ago).

“I decided to take the plunge,” he said optimistically, happy with his career change.  “Because it will only be a matter of time before the gravy train stops rolling.”

“Oh, do you work in the oil sector then?” We asked.

“No,” he replied. “I work in finance, but it will only be a matter of time before my sector feels the strain. I don’t want to be the last one off the ship.”

Nobody knows for sure what the global economy will look like and how it will affect us personally. But yesterday, when I posted an article about the changing world on the lifeGO Facebook page, the article garnered some heart-felt comments from those who had taken the plunge and took the decision to build their own dreams rather than working on someone else’s and be stuck in the old structure.

I would like to share this one, from a highly qualified accountant who had worked in her job for 13 years before doing a LIFE AUDIT and making a meaningful change in her life’s path:

It’s funny right how the universe works sometimes…. It just put things in place… It’s just up to us to notice it and stop being in denial hehehe….

Why do we expect the good times to last forever? We have exploited world economy for far too long, creating value where none exists, shifting paper around that are virtually worthless.  America is U$ 18.8 trillion in debt, and the figure is still rising by the second. I wrote about it in my book blog.

Life changes and reinvents itself every so often. It hasn’t for a while when it comes to global economy. Perhaps now is the time to go back to the basics, to a simpler and more authentic world. I, for one, am looking forward to the shirting sands.
