Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays. Today is just a short post stating “Money isn’t real” for everyone to ponder.
This picture isn’t really related to the topic. It’s a just a cute Maneki-neko I found on Pexels.
“Money is just a tool.” “A means to an end.”
So, in reality, in this rat race to try to obtain as money as possible, you should probably ask yourself, what is your end.
Or, if you want to take it one step further, consider:
“Money isn’t real.”
It’s just a medium of exchange, something that is a value substitute in order to move value between places.
At the end of the day, you need to understand what you truly value and understand that money is just a means to that end.
If you spend money on things which aren’t a part of what you truly value, then you’ve strayed from your path.
I ate a lot of Korean BBQ today with a friend… so today I valued time with my friend and lots of beef in my belly. However, that is just a “side quest” in my “true quest”, because what I really value is family, time, and freedom of choice. Every dollar I make and save is channeled toward maximizing those goals.
So ask yourself:
What is your money doing for you? To what end? Why? Is that what you want? What you value?
(This is kind of another Financial Exercise, along the lines of Value Cost Ratio)
