Every other week, I hold a JOURNAL CLUB. After manually filtering through the millions of articles out there on the web, I present a few that impacted my life this month.
Here’s our Journal Club for the week, enjoy!
- In this entertaining yet true post by Physician On FIRE, we learn the benefits of keeping our relationships, friendships, and introspect intact as we navigate the life of financial independence.
- Albeit, this post by Dr. Mc Frugal isn't necessarily about finance, it does put weight on improving our mental state. In this article, we learn why considering the power of now is a healthy meditative practice.
- There is a lot missed when it comes to financial education. PF Geeks adds to the list with one basic concept that isn't necessarily taught– the savings rate. And while 90% of “being good with money” comes down to this metric, it will also play a big factor in how much you save.
- Dr. Lynn Marie Morski likes quitting. She likes it as much as life itself. But here's the thing. Even though there may be a stigma associated with quitting, it's not always a bad thing (even when you're on the path to financial freedom). She's shared this insight on the Financial Residency Podcast.
- Doing less of what you don't like and more time on doing things you do like sounds like a dream, doesn't it? It's actually why most of you follow this blog. Four Pillar Freedom helps adjust our attitudes towards a better quality of life.
- Earning money with your car without driving it? It can be done. Question is… are you willing? This author on Choose FI shares earning potential and apps to use.
- Being that you might own your own small real estate business, or thinking in that direction to generate passive income, you might have already thought about what you need for retirement. Anjali Jariwala, Host of the Money Check Up Podcast, provides great tips on what to do.
- Delegating your decisions around money? Maybe that's not the best thing to do. On the Stacking Benjamin's Podcast, we get to hear about the mother who was left out of the family's financial decisions. Not the wisest of choices.
A little bit of motivation below. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
