Why anxiety about spending money is pointless

Anxiety about spending moneyIf you can afford to go first class and you don’t, your heirs will. ~Mike Spinelli

I am a firm believer in the need to manage money carefully and I have made that a constant theme in this blog. You really must look after your money.

If your aim is to create wealth for yourself, then you have to manage your money with great care, otherwise it will disappear faster than you can say “stone broke’.

However as with everything in life balance is very important too.

If you can’t enjoy a little of your money then it all becomes a bit pointless, I’m sure you’ll agree.

Putting off enjoying your money until old age is a bit like putting off sex until old age. Why would you?

We’re all going to die one day and you can’t take anything with you when you go. So if you don’t enjoy some of your wealth now then your heirs will; of that you can be sure.

My message today therefore is create wealth for yourself but don’t stress when you’re tempted to do something nice for yourself. It’s perfectly reasonable to reward yourself occasionally.

Why?

Why not?

You’re worth a little enjoyment occasionally, surely? Ultimately, anxiety about spending money is pointless.

It’s never a good idea to waste money but it’s a good idea to ensure you enjoy the fruits of you labour now and then too.
