Irony: Running a blog about keeping finances in order, saving money, and sticking to a budget. Then, delaying an e-book release because 2 unexpected medical bills surfaced after 7 months, causing editing, formatting, and cover design fees to be postponed.
The lesson: (Or, the learning experience, as I call it with my 2 boys. Everything that happens is a learning experience when you have a 4-year-old and 2-year-old inhabiting your domicile.)
Separate what you want from what you need.
Releasing an e-book in April is something I want. Building an emergency fund and being able to knock unexpected medical bills out of the park with little to no notice is something that we need.
Separate “want” from “need”, and you’re on your way to financial success.
What is something that you want, but know you don’t need?
