I love this quote.

"Too many people are buying things they can't afford, with money that they don't have. To impress people that they don't like". Anonymous.

So..... Stop doing it!

All too often when making big decisions we get stuck. We make short term emotional choices whilst remaining blind to fulfilling our true core values and the values of our future selves.

So, with the clarity of hindsight and  self-reflection, I give you my list of "20 Things That Will Matter to You Less in 20 Years’ Time".

1. Having more than you really need.

2. Winning at everything.

3. Needing to know everything.

4. Your job.

5. Fancy stuff.

6. Shallow relationships & toxic people.

8. Being busy, all the time.

9. Taking shortcuts.

10. Endlessly embarking on new fad diets.

11. Perfectionism.

12. Holding onto your failures.

13. Choosing cheapness over quality.

If you are stuck in a funk or you’re lost in a cloud of complexity, feel free to contact me. Most often in life we just need someone to talk things through and to lighten our load a little.

This post was written by Me, as such they are my personal views and not financial or general advice.

You should always seek independent financial advice when it comes to choices about your personal finances. This is one area of your life where it’s worth paying for it to be done right.
