It's an interesting question because in the modern world this is a reasonably big amount of money for an average person but not enough to sustain a lifetime of luxury with. So here's my economical goeroe coming out of it's shell giving you some stuff to think about.
Startingpoint: You get 200.000 euro's (imagine you got the money out of nothing, lottery for example) You don't have any other money, only this amount.(imagine you were living off your parent until you turned 20 and had to support yourself from then or went broke just before 65)
Question 1. Imagine you're 20 years old how would you spend it, or arrange it so it's usefull in your life?
Question 2. Imagine you're 65 years old going into retirement, what would you do with it?
Possible options to give you something to think about
-invest? (to make more money)
-save? (against rudely low interest rated due to economic resession, so keeping it for later but gaining nothing
-spend? (on what?)
-fulfill own dreams? (which are?)
Show which parts you would use for what, make a list!
(so if you use 10.000 euro's for travelling, 30.000 to save @ bank, 20.000 for education or 150.000 to buy a house or something mention it)
Make a list with all the money placed under something you want to do with it. Try to do it with as much detail as you can.
Money is an interesting thing in the sense that it gives possibilities. It's definetly 1 of the things that shapes a life. This is a thread that gives you a lot of space to think about what you want. Be creative, figure out your hopes/dreams influanced by money and write them down!
Coming at a later date.
I will put them there if anyone is interested in a thread like this. We will see
