Given that on average, we spend at least a third of our time each day collecting money, money's place in our overall vision for our lives is pretty crucial. Here are seven questions designed to give you a sense of how money and your ultimate life vision are interconnected.
Let's start with some biggies:
1. What would you do if you won the lottery?
2. If all jobs paid the same, what would you choose to do?
3. If you were given a million dollars and you had to use it all up in a month, how would you spend it?
I like questions like these, they inspire powerful fantasies and can help clarify your fondest desires. Trouble is, they're a bit impractical -- you haven't won the lottery, all jobs don't pay the same, and statistically, you're more likely to be kicked to death by a goat than given a million dollars.
So now, let's ask some questions a bit "closer to home" . . .
(The following questions are taken from Paul Hwoschinsky's excellent book, True Wealth . . .)
4. What qualities do you attribute to money?
5. What purpose does it hold for you?
6. What are you willing to do for money? What are you not willing to do for it?
7. What are you willing to do with money? What are you not willing to do with it?
1. Review your answers to the above questions. What do they tell you about the role of money in your life?
2. Based on what you've learned, choose at least three changes you will make in the way you spend, earn, invest, or save!
Have fun, learn heaps, and to paraphrase John
Ask not what you can do for money -- ask what money can do for you!
