Ramit Sethi at the I Will Teach You To Be Rich blog has been running a series called “The Money Diaries”. It’s based on something called “The Sex Diaries” (which I haven’t read). People make note of how they’ve handled money for one week, the data is anonymized, and then posted on I Will Teach You To Be Rich. Most of the posts revolve around people who are basically broke, want to get ahead, but mostly bounce from one financial emergency to the next. It’s like many of us.
Today’s post is different. Here is somebody who lives life, yet doesn’t get knocked down every time something comes up. Read it. Memorize it. Start planning your own life and finances like this. I am slowly working on a blog post on a similar subject. Hopefully this will help me finish it.
