Personal finance lessons form the ICU

“Health is wealth”. Really? There are few differences, but then many more similarities, too. The value of health is realized when one loses it. Many of us are born healthy.

I had a very close encounter with a critical health situation. This not just allowed me to think about the virtues that we are blessed with, I thought of translating some of the lessons to wealth – or broadly personal finance.

Here is a collection of my lessons learnt while spending time in the ICU.
