Any cash with you – in your pocket or sitting in an account right now, is being held for “someone else” that will employ it to gainful employment.
That “someone else” can be a grocery store, club, family, friend, resort, hotel, bar, stranger, colleague, game, app, online store…
Money hates being idle. If you don’t use it, it will use you.
“Money is a terrible master, but an excellent servant.” – P.T. Barnum
The only money you really own, is the one invested in an instrument that ensures you have some time to think before you can liquidate. Build in a personal inconvenience for liquidation.
While thinking of overcoming your built-in inconvenience, which will happen quite often, I suggest you find a physical exercise that makes you sweat. Sweating cools down the body and might just help you cool off from hot choices.
Cash is not king, you are.
Put your cash to work today, in an area you understand. You will be pleased at how diligently it serves.
