While there are many different factors that contribute to clutter, most of us have heard for decades about the “uncluttered lifestyle.” It’s the idea that we should spend time doing the things that we love, in the areas that really make us happy. It’s important to remember that there are many things that aren’t considered to be “the stuff”, and those things can actually add value to our lives.
Sometimes its just about being aware of what you actually want to do, in order to have that “freedom” that we all crave. I recently read an article which talked about the importance of having a clear set of goals. Because a goal is a goal is a goal. Its always about following through and getting it done.
This is a similar concept to what I’ve been trying to remind myself of. I was recently talking to a friend of mine who wanted to get serious about her career, and I told her that the most important thing she needed to do was to get her finances in order. Because, I thought, if she lets her money slide, then she has no money. And if she doesn’t have money, then she has no goals.
In a way that’s true. But that’s because it takes money to save money. If you don’t save any money, then you have no money. And if you don’t have money, then you have no goals.
But the problem is that money is limited and you can only save so much. If you only save $10,000 then you have no money. If you only save $100,000 then you have no goals. And if you only save $1,000,000 then you have no money.
You only have so much money because you have to worry about money. And you have to worry about goals because you have to worry about money. And while you can’t save all 100,000, you can still save only 10,000. You just have to save 10,000. But you don’t have to worry about a million. You don’t have to worry about a billion. You just have to worry about 10,000.
In a way, it’s kind of like saying, “Hey, if you really care about saving your money, then save ten thousand, give me the ten thousand, and I’m gonna give you the ten thousand back and then you can save your million and become a millionaire.” Instead of thinking “Hey, I should invest ten thousand in the stock market,” you just have to think “Oh, hey, I’m a millionaire. I should buy some shares in this company and become a millionaire.
I always tell people that the right way to live your life is to never think about how many pennies you have to spend. Because if you think about how many pennies you have to spend, it’s going to affect you.
I once asked the guy who owns a home and two cars, who lives on a small income. He said he never thinks about how much money he has to spend, but he does think about how he spends his money. His solution is to eat in the kitchen less. I think this is a great way to be a happy homemaker.
You’re a really busy person. You don’t have time to spend thinking about all the money you have to spend. The fact that you don’t spend money is what makes you a happy homemaker. That said, when you buy things with money, you’re just spending money. That is, your money is gone. But it can’t be, because with money comes money and with money comes power.
