Saving is a investment in hte future
Knowledge is a investment for the future
@tigerrush, I disagree with one of these points,( but I think maybe that’s what you meant anyway so I apologize in advance if it is). The future is now, invest in it. For example, bob is making minimum wage and saving saving saving. Bob could take a portion or all of those savings and invest in supplies, acquire a skill that requires financial help, or a license that will boost his income or accumulation and make his saving grow much faster. So investing money into becoming more valuable would yield a better result that future you’re saving for. Invest in snowball-rolling your money more than saving. i’m probably wrong in how I explained this, but i think you could get the gist.
What are you saving your money for? A retirement from work that you’ll be physically unable to fully enjoy? Supporting your children and their pursuit of knowledge?
It’s important that you know what you’re investing in before you begin inhibiting your current lifestyle. Spending money intelligently to increase your knowledge or your satisfaction in the present is nothing to scoff at.
