WHAT IS “Mêtis” AND HOW DOES IT RELATE TO MONEY MATTERS?
The ancient Greeks often faced superior forces. Legend is born from the heroics and epic conquests of these times. When they were faced with destruction, they were left to their own cunning, strategy, innovation, grit, training, and determination to stave off defeat. Often they went beyond just surviving, to thrive, and even claim victory.
This wasn’t by accident. They knew when to strike, and when to hold-fast. The leaders understood where to invest heavily, to cultivate and grow their culture, and they knew when to focus on the military. The Greeks understood the importance of philosophy and logic while at the same time also training impressive naval forces and armies.
In my opinion, this concept of Mêtis captures all those attributes. It is applicable today as well! The theme of this blog is applying Mêtis in your personal finances. We all face challenges about money; it is part of life, and it can be quite intimidating! The financial fight is rarely a “fair” fight.
We get to chose to accept defeat, merely survive, or thrive! This blog is dedicated to helping you figure out your personal finances, and successfully manage your money through the difficulties that life throws at you.
