I started listening to a book recommended by Mr Money Mustache:
I’m only about 30 min. in, but it mentioned “wanting what you already have” as a route to banish the dissatisfaction of always wanting more. I think I’ve done a lot of that in the last few years. If you want what you already have, then why try to change things for the better? If it’s an “and” rather than an “or” – in what proportion?
Say you take a hybrid model where you divide your life into sections (house, car, marriage, etc.). You set goals for them… and you only allow yourself one round of goals for each. Is that any better?
