You are in the learning stage of life until you go out and get a full-time job.
There are two parts to the earning years: earning enough money to pay your bills, and saving enough money to prepare for the yearning years.
If you only focus on spending your money to enjoy life during your earning years, you will not have enough money later for the yearning years and will have to delay those yearning years well in to your eighties or nineties.
Many times, we look at the cost of something and don’t think about the implications of what that cost can do to help give us our time back.
You might have the opportunity to work a few more hours, do a side gig, or do something else to help earn that little bit of extra money to cover the cost of a service or item that can ultimately give you more of your personal time back.
Look over the things that take away from your personal time to see if there might be a better way to get more of that time back.
