Three Things #5

Here are three things I've discovered recently that you might find helpful:

1) As someone who helps folks align their lifestyle with their finances, I thought Tim Maurer's recent post, “Hope Deferred Makes the Heart Sick”, did a great job highlighting the dangers of delayed gratification. You might be focused on where you want to go, but don't forget to enjoy the ride.

2) Speaking of delayed gratification, we could also spend more time appreciating what we've already got. Ben Hardy wrote a great article on Medium appropriately titled, "How What You've Got Can Become What You Want." His article is full of actionable advice on increasing happiness & gratitude in our lives. I'd suggest giving it a read and then revisiting it again as I've found myself doing.

3) Finally, I really enjoyed this Psychology Today article, “What to Do in Your 30s to Be Happy in Your 50s.” Don't let the title fool you as no matter what your age is, these great tips are for everyone and are provided by folks who have lived a long life and generously share their wisdom with us.

I hope you enjoyed this edition of Three Things. Don't hesitate to reach out whenever you're ready.
