Everyone says that time is money. Well, there’s truth in the reverse, as well. If you spend your money wisely, money becomes time. You can spend your time doing things you care about if you’re not constantly chasing the dollar.
The Rewards of Routine Maintenance This article meanders in a few different directions, but the part that intrigued me is that of “missing” bills even though you can pay them just because you’re disorganized. That used to happen to me fairly often, actually. (@ get rich slowly)
“I Can’t Do My (business, art, purpose, mission) Without Funding First!” There are very few dreams that you can’t chase in your spare time on a shoestring budget. If you have the passion and even a bit of talent, it will click and good things will happen. If you keep telling yourself you need funding first, is it really your dream at all? (@ pick the brain)
