Chapter One: Money, Communication, & Happiness
The main money challenge in life is to make 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 to achieve. It all 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 worrying about current problems and issues. That’s a normal response. After all, the 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.
Lesson #1 is: Money is for life, not just for now!
