Money for Life

Life's main money challenge is to have our money last as long as we do, or longer! And without giving up enjoyment along the way! That's a tall order, but it's not impossible. It starts with awareness.

The mistake most people make is that they don't take the long-range view about life.....much of their energy goes to worries about current problems and issues. That's normal. After all, bills have to be paid. But without taking a long-range view of our lives and doing the best job possible of planning for the future, we are likely to experience some unpleasant money surprises along the way.

This is lesson number one. Money is for life, not just for now! This means that we must see money as a resource to be earned, managed, spent, and grown! And we have to figure out a way to have financial resources even when our working days are over.
