The Behaviour Gap: Work, Save, Invest
Whenever we are faced with things that we don’t understand, it can generate anxiety and fear. Real people often do obsess over the consequences of future events, even if they are almost always beyond our control. So here are three things to remember when you feel like you have no control of understanding of how the world is about to change:
- These things are not problems now.
- Focus on your personal economy.
- Forget about finding the best investment.
Making wise decisions about how you invest your money is important, but it doesn’t have nearly the impact of working hard and saving more. I’ve found that it helps to think of earning money as my job and investing as a tool to protect the money I’ve earned.
