Here's Journal Club 2/18/22! Every week, I hold a JOURNAL CLUB. After filtering through the articles on the web, I present a few that impacted my life this week. Be safe and stay well!
- If you're just starting your FIRE journey or at the halfway point to your financial independence goal, the thought of paying off your mortgage might have crossed your mind at some point. Still, you wonder if this is a goal worth pursuing. Do check out this fascinating interview shared by the Physician on FIRE that offers some helpful tips on the subject – FIRE Crossroads 020: Should They Pay Off the Mortgage?
- Worry and stress are an unavoidable part of human life. However, some people are better equipped at focusing their time and energy on things they can control versus things they can't. So, how do they do this? Coach Carson explains this simple yet profound concept in the article – The Circle of Concern & Influence – How to Reduce Worry, Stress, & Anxiety.
- We've all heard the phrase “money can't buy happiness.” But why is happiness such a big deal? The Debt-Free Doctor takes a closer look at the question and discusses whether money is really that important for people to be happy. Check out the article – What If Money CAN Buy Happiness?
- Many new or aspiring real estate investors find themselves stuck in the analysis paralysis phase. According to the author of Afford Anything, new investors are unable to make decisions because they are too focused on crunching theoretical numbers, leading to inaction. To help you get started, the author shares an encouraging investment story in the article – How Kelsey Bought a Rental Property in Joshua Tree, California.
