Why Studying Time and Money Is Like Merging Star Trek and Star Wars!

Why Studying Time and Money Is Like Merging Star Trek and Star Wars!

Hi! It isn't common to get a resource blog like The Cool Time and Money Blog, which aims to be comprehensively cross-disciplinary by providing information on both financial planning and on time management, with a dab of goal-setting thrown in.

There are two reasons I've gone to the trouble to do this:

1. I'm equally interested in the roles of financial planning and time management in determining long-term human success; and
2. I believe hybrid vigour, which is the genetic term for the tendency (though by no means a certainty) for crossbreeds to be better and stronger than the original, can apply in the blending of two areas of study.

A fun way to illustrate the quirky results that can be derived from an imaginary exercise in literary crossbreeding can be seen here in this great picture of the most famous Federation starship captain of the 23rd century being carried away by muscle from a galaxy far, far away.

So, tell me, what two disparate interests of yours can be merged to create something refreshingly new?

Do let me know. Thanks.

Take care.

Warmest regards,

Rajen-Time management forces us to focus on the little tasks with a deadline. It also forces us to focus on Organization which from my experience is critical to financial prosperity. Until me clear the mental and physical clutter it is very hard to implement your great prosperity techniques! Have a great week :)

Dear Steve,

Thanks for the great insight. You are right, the less clutter we have in our heads, lives and desks, the easier it is to focus on the basic disciplines of building wealth.

I appreciate the comment. And love your own blog at

Stay well.

Warmest regards,
