Getting This Envy Feeling

I had a classmate in secondary school. He studies alright and seems to be one of those bright kids. Since school, we have not met each other until some 18 years later. Turns up that that he did not complete his degree but instead opted for some kind of stock option trading education.

Here’s his typical day. He starts work at around 8pm because he trades options in the United States. All he needed is a computer with broadband services and the desk at the corner of his home. He logs on and checks the market (what that means, I have no idea). If he calculates that there is an opportunity for him that day, he will pursue with the transaction(s) and logs off the computer by 12 midnight. If the day does not provide any opportunities to trade, he will log off by 9pm; leaving him enough time to contact me for mamak.

His day time is very much free and he gets to do whatever he wants. Just by working a few hours day for 5 days in a week, he makes close to RM6,000 thereabout. There are days that he loses in a transaction but most of the time, he makes. Averaging at RM6,000 a month, he lives a simple lifestyle which makes his savings big. No boss, no lousy colleagues, no deadlines, no customers, it’s quite envious.

    I would suggest he should seriously consider to use his spare time to do something meaningful, e.g. charity as one’s life is short.
