“If you go at your work with half a heart, it will show in lackluster results…” - Robert Greene
It is the same when working towards your version of financial freedom. If you are not fully committed the task becomes impossible. Even in the best of times managing your spending is hard.
Dedication is necessary but avoid a life of austerity. That’s surefire way to fail. If you never treat yourself there is a good chance that you will also approach it with half a heart.
