Sometimes I just don’t care about money.
Or about career, hustling, blogging, early retirement, investing, saving or anything else we talk about here on this blog.
And on these days it’s very, very, hard for me to sit down and write to you about it.
So today I’m not.
Instead, I’m going to tell you what I do on days like this.
And that is: anything that keeps me away from doing something stupid!
Like buying up something ridiculous, or treating myself to something (I think) I deserve or even selling my blog for a million dollars and being done with it – hah.
Because days like this are what get us into trouble.
Slow and steady wins the race, but the times we slip can easily erase years of hard work if not careful.
We are not perfect.
We are never 100% “on”, even if it seems everyone else is.
They are not.
“Stop comparing your raw footage to everyone else’s highlight reel,” my friend Shannyn says.
Everyone sucks sometimes!
And today – it’s me.
So I’m taking the day off and distracting myself until the mood passes.
I will be taking walks.
I will be cleaning up the house.
I will be doing tasks that don’t require any emotion or brain whatsoever.
And tomorrow, if I’m lucky, I’ll be back to being Mr. Money again :)
But whatever I do, I will not be doing anything that jeopardizes my finances today.
We work too hard to let it all slip through our fingers.
And the next time you’re not feeling it either, I recommend giving yourself a hall pass too.
One day off is better than regret!
