I know a lot of truth, but I still have a bad life. Always pay for other people’s reasons, why isn’t life like this? 01 On the second day of the 618 e-commerce promotion, I exchanged shopping experience with my colleagues. I said that I bought a book worth more than 400 yuan. They looked surprised: I haven’t bought a book worth 400 yuan in a year! Because most of the time books are collected on behalf of colleagues, I realized that compared with the purchase of their clothes and cosmetics in the past two years, something is wrong, or my focus has changed. 2016 is known as the first year of knowledge payment, and getting, being in the field, etc. stirs the nerves of everyone’s knowledge anxiety; in 2017, the wind has been blowing more and more fiercely, Zhihu live, Himalaya paid courses, etc. make everyone feel: It turned out that the fate changed Knowledge I just haven’t seen yet!
I Know a Lot of Truth.
In this wave of knowledge payment, I also bring my wallet and keep up with the pace. But I am not the creator of the upper end, but the consumer of the lower end. Of course, this does not prevent me from moving forward. I sing while paying the fee:”Why the stronger the wind, the more turbulent my heart is…” Of course, in the end, the back waves of the Yangtze River pushed the front waves, and the front waves died on the beach. I don’t know how I have lived in the past two years, but I still calculated an account for myself. From 2016.1 to 2017.6, I have a total of:Bought 46 lectures on Zhihu, costing about 1,500 yuan; Bought 21 lectures on WeChat, costing about 500 yuan; Participated in a writing training class, which cost about 500 yuan;It costs about 300 yuan to buy a course at Geton; Participated in two groups that went to bed early and woke up early, costing 100 yuan;I bought several seven, seven, eight, eight courses, which cost about 2,000 yuan.
In This Wave of Knowledge.
Together it cost about $5,000. And that doesn’t include the paper books and e-books I buy every year, which I’m pretty crazy about too. Of course, I can’t deny all of these courses, at least some of them are useful. But the biggest result of these lectures or courses for me is: because I spend money, I will naturally spend time on them, and each lecture should be at least an hour. Some even listen to it two or three times, so my time cost is about 300 hours. 300 hours is almost enough to write a book. Now a popular word is called IQ tax, which means the tax paid for your low IQ. If so, this is the biggest IQ tax I’ve paid in a year or two. 02 So in fact, I am afraid to write this article, I am afraid that I am afraid that I am afraid that others will see that my IQ is low. Looking back on the time I bought the course, have I gotten smarter? I seem to have a few more white hairs, a few more wrinkles, and a few more bags under my eyes. It seems that nothing has changed in my life.
