Most People Don’t Even Realize They’re Making This One Huge Life Mistake

One of the worst ways in which you can ruin your life is by not planning ahead. We often get caught up in this rat race of life and don’t think about what will happen when we retire or if we are disabled. Don’t wait until you are close to retirement age before you start worrying about the future. By then, it will be too late. Put in the hard work when you are young, and you will have a much easier time later in life. Put away savings and build up assets.

Key Takeaways:

  • Adult life starts when we get on the treadmill. We show up somewhere and do something for which we receive compensation–money. Money! What are we going to do with it?
  • You now get to pay docking fees, buy fuel and insurance and cover maintenance now and then. You’ve just upped your outgo and committed yourself more to the treadmill.
  • Freedom, your personal freedom, comes at a steep price. As my dad would say, “You work 8 hours a day for someone else and 8 for yourself.

“You now get to pay docking fees, buy fuel and insurance and cover maintenance now and then. You’ve just upped your outgo and committed yourself more to the treadmill.”
