“Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish but it will not replace you as the driver.” Ayn Rand – Atlas Shrugged
Does paying off your debt or not ending up like a bag lady sound like fun? Not really. Sometimes the goals we create for ourselves are so constrictive and unappealing that we are not motivated to setup a plan to reach that goal.
Why not spice up your goal and make it more tangible? If you want to buy a new home or upgrade your current one, put a picture of an actual home in your neighborhood (in a realistic price range) on your fridge or near your computer.
I love Big Sur and got engaged at this amazing resort Post Ranch Inn . I have a postcard of my favorite view in my office. It motivates me to spend less on wasteful expenditures that I don’t even remember and put more into my savings for my Big Sur vacation.
