The Habits of Eccentric Billionaires: Smart or Stupid?

billionaire habits

This article is inspired by a review of Breaking out of Homeostasis on Amazon.UK, written by “MP“:

The increased awareness of yourself and actions after you read it is amazing. If you ever wondered why for example when people travel they come back full of ideas and positivity this book will explain the science. It makes you see why so many millionaires/successful people can often seem eccentric or crazy to the rest of us because the fact is they actually have much better control of their thoughts and subsequent actions than the rest of us.

Think about it – Steve Jobs didn’t wear shoes half the time, Richard Branson would put his life in deliberate danger trying to fly around the world in a hot air balloon, Warren Buffett does not have a computer/smartphone. It may seem crazy to us but they are actually breaking out of homeostasis.

I think we all have 5-10 books we will continually come back to. This is definitely one of mine. I started again with the intention to have read it twice by the 31st dec.
