Daily Money Minute

Fotolia_54867638_XS_7“Being wealthy doesn’t equate to freedom. Freedom is having time to enjoy life and being in control of your own destiny. These are more powerful sources of happiness.” ~Kevin McCloud

Interesting observation from Kevin McCloud, quoted in the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph. Having money is great and building your own personal wealth overall is a very good thing to do. However having wealth means you have to work hard at preserving your capital. You have to take care of it and that takes time and you have to work at it. So wealth may give you the freedom to do many things but it doesn’t really give you complete freedom. You simply swap one set of problems for another. So, as with all things, it’s getting the balance right that matters most.
