Here are three things I've discovered recently that you might enjoy and find helpful:
1) Carl Richards wrote a great article in the New York Times illustrating how you can live a life full of experiences while still maintaining financial security. As someone who values experiences over things, but not necessarily financial security, I found Carl's article to be particularly enlightening. I think you will, too.
2) A recent Fortune interview featuring Mark Cuban illustrates how he values time over money. When asked what mistakes he'd made in handling the growth of his wealth, Mark answered...
"I placed too much importance on comparing how much I had to others early on. Then I started realizing time was a far more valuable asset. When I started using money to create more time, I appreciated both more."
You don't have to be a billionaire like Mark to appreciate his answer. We can always make more money, but we only have a finite amount of time - a great reminder for us all.
3) Ron Leiber tackled the age old question of “How Much Money Is Enough?” in his recent New York Times article. Whether you find yourself struggling with your wants vs needs or have kids or grandkids that you want to help, but not spoil, this article is well worth your attention.
