Or having your money work for you in some capacity. I think money is a tricky thing and is something that stops us from doing what we truly want to be doing sometimes, and if we are doing what we truly want to be doing it doesn't necessarily provide us with enough income to enjoy some of life's greatest pleasures (free time being one of them).
I think this is also very relevant to being "paleo" as well because money is possibly the biggest neolithic factor in our lives above all else. It creates unnecessary worry over bills, being tied down to a desk all day (for most of us), it can be the source of relationship issues, and the list goes on and on.
By taking a year to learn how to invest and make your money work for you, I bet you could remove all these negatives from your life and create immense amounts of time for you to use how you want to.
If I absolutely had to learn how to invest and there was a gun to my head, I guess I would do my best to seek out people who have been successful long term and try to learn from them as best as I could. Most times I think this is a short cut compared to years of learning through your own mistakes.
