What is the first thing that you give up when life starts to get busy? For me it is exercise. The next thing I tend to give up is often saving because if I’m flat out I look for the fastest way to do something and generally you pay a premium for that.
The very first thing I would do is set up an automatic transfer to syphon off a set amount of money each week into a sub account with your bank and give it a flash name like “IKMSMOI” (investments keep my sticky mitts off it).
A conversation I had a month or so ago is still buzzing round in my head. I was asked about my preference towards passive investing versus active investing. So, I’ve spent a lot of time over the last couple of weeks thinking this through so I can get it clear in my head.
