You Can Only Wear One Outfit a Day
I’ll occasionally watch house tours of the rich and famous on YouTube and one thing I notice is the size of their wardrobes. They have a closet bigger than my apartment filled with designer pieces. But no matter how rich you are, you can only wear one pair of shoes, one pair of pants, one outfit at a time.
It reminds me of the classic blog post, Your Human-size Life:
One of the biggest mistakes rich people make is to try to live larger than a single human being can. A mathematical impossibility. You can buy a big house, but you can only sleep in one bedroom at a time. You can own twenty fantastic cars, airplanes and yachts, but you can only be in one at a time. You can own an NBA team and a MLB team, and you get to sit in the nicest seat in the house at games, but you still can only sit in one seat. In other words, your humanity doesn’t increase just because your wealth did. You don’t get bigger.
