What is your money dial -second part


Last week I wrote about money dials and what importance they play in our spending.

It is a concept developed by Ramit Sethi. He has worked with many people on analyzing their money dial and how to stop spending unnecessarily on expenses which don’t bring much value and joy to our life.

I continued pondering on the topic of what my money dials are and do I hold grudges towards myself for some of them. I think I was not completely honest with my judgement of my money dials. It is ok, as long as I admit it and stop blaming myself for decisions made in that respect.

Sometimes, we live to experience so many synchronicities, that we could get a bit light-headed. The easy and “right time, right place” way of things falling into place feels incredible and we take inspired actions.

Monthly Report for May 2019

As every month I try to summarize what went according to plan, what was achieved, moments of celebration, and moments of the hall of shame.

As a starter this is a month to be grateful. It is advisable to practice gratitude at any time, but when the universe in the form of friends, family and colleagues (and even the tax department) manifests a lot of your desires, that puts an extra bright smile on your face.
