Everything Comes Down to Ego: Feed it to Get What You Want

The reason why people want to be famous? They want to be the center of attention (we have no idea why anyone would want this). The reason people want the Patek watch, Ferrari and big house? To get more attention. The reason why people buy brand name clothing? To get more attention. And. Of course. The […]

Human Nature Will Never Change. And. How to Profit From It.

Back in 2012, we used to believe that giving out the truth would lead to more competition. That people would wake up, realize their mistakes and take action. After realizing this belief was wrong we started writing here as a hobby (originally to troll the internet which later changed). The reason for this? Human nature […]

Enterprise Sales: A Legitimate Career to Get Rich

This is a guest post from frequent commenter “Tech Sales” who works in the industry and has already *made it* up the stack so to speak. Enterprise sales is one of the few careers we recommend in Efficiency and we thought it would make sense to do a cleaner overview of how to get into […]

Spotting the Mediocre: Ten Common Types

For the past couple of years we’ve had a lot of fun talking about regular people. They are easy to spot as they are entirely driven by emotion, root for the “underdog”, look to gain without adding any value and see everything through two dimensions. Generally speaking, they see the short term gain and lose […]

Life Changing Items to Be Aware of As You Get Older

We wrote efficiency since a lot of our youth was wasted. Reading about “hacks” for health, fitness, money, dating that were all an enormous waste of time. Since the vast majority will still search for special tricks, we’re going to highlight some things to be aware of as you get older. A lot of them […]

Mayweather McGregor “Fight”: Business Tutorial and Controversial Lessons

Now that the fight is over (Floyd won as expected and we made $$$), we think it is the perfect time to highlight all of the chaos that occurred leading up to the fight. A lot of the items will be controversial and several will be obvious for those with a background in sales/business/sports. The […]

Spotting the Fool in the Room

In every situation (where money is involved), there is always a fool in the room. As you can see we’re zeroed in on the fun fight we’re going to watch on Saturday since the quote is derived from Poker: “Look around the poker table; If you can’t see the Sucker, you’re it”. The most important part […]

How to Quit. When Throwing in the Towel is the Right Decision.

Quitting is quite difficult for stubborn intelligent people. They will try over and over to get what they want and sometimes this is the wrong move (they just don’t have the right talents/skills). This is because they have a large ego. The two fastest ways to take down your own ego is to 1) quit […]

Time to Manage Your Own Book?

We’ve been proponents of Dollar cost averaging for over 5-years (long-time followers of the blog will know this) and now we’re going to switch gears and suggest it is better to manage your own book. We’ve seen too many companies get bid up due to participation in specific ETFs/funds etc. that don’t deserve a propped […]

First Public Efficiency Q&A

We are making a slight change as many purchasers were foreigners and we think it is fair to give everyone a shot at asking one solid question each. We’re limiting it to one question for this Q&A because we’re going to keep this open for 24 hours. If you have a question here is how it […]

Follow the Hate and You’ll Find the Truth

After launching our first and (extremely likely) last book we saw an interesting trend. Multiple people who said our work was terrible, useless and “BS” all did exactly what was expected… They bought it. Surely a few will slam it as being fake (we know it isn’t), a few will steal and try to emulate […]

How to Create a Robot

With all of the hype, noise and emotion around AI and robotics, we thought it would be good to highlight a way to create a “human robot”. Since we’re still several years away from robotics, we may as well create human robots in the near-term. Besides, a human robot can still be underpaid and deliver […]

Gambling Like a Boss: Always Bet On Black

Buying Time from Low-Income All The Way Up to High Income

We’ve talked a lot about “trading time for money” and how this is a poor way to get rich. Without being paid on performance metrics at minimum… the path to getting rich is significantly more difficult. The opposite is also true. If you can spend money to buy time it can accelerate your earnings. The […]

You are Richer Than You Think and What to Do When You’re Set

We recently received an email that we are paraphrasing for privacy purposes. In essence, a single forty year old man (“John”) has $2M and no interest in having kids. But. He does not believe he is “rich” and continues to work in a career he loathes. The problem? He didn’t take into account an eventual […]

The Greatest Time in History to Be Alive

Lets look back a mere 40 years. In 1977, we didn’t even have the internet. We didn’t have electric cars. We didn’t have “low cost airlines”. We didn’t have cell phones. We didn’t even have a CD player! There are so many things that we did not have that it could take a full day […]

Efficient Market Hypothesis Does Not Make Logical Sense

We are going to take an extremely complicated subject and attempt to make it understandable to anyone. We will fail miserably at this given that it’s our first attempt at describing the idea. In this case we’re using the readership as our Guinea Pig so thank you for reading! Essentially, we are going to walk […]
