Morgan Housel has always been thought-provoking, including his recent piece, “A Few Thoughts on Spending Money.” The title is apt because he shares his thoughts, wide-ranging perspective, and excellent questions about money and how to think about it. Stated differently, Morgan doesn’t provide specific answers or recommendations about money. Instead, he encourages a mental exercise to discover what money and wealth mean to you. However, instead of doing that exercise alone, if you’re a Hill client, we’d love to engage in such a dialogue with you…and your family…if you’re open to it. Call us or schedule a time here!
Morgan Housel does it again in this recent piece. We think you’ll like it for the same reasons we do which are several because it engages your mind, heart, and soul. Are you frugal, independent, or something else entirely? Is long-term investment success dependent more on knowledge or behavior? Either way, do you invest alone or with a trusted advisor? And possibly most importantly and challenging to do, answering the question for and about yourself, “What’s my relationship with money?” That answer will likely make answering the prior questions much easier; however, this keystone question is often unasked and unanswered because it’s so hard for most of us to confront because it gets to our deepest essence. Let us know if you’d like our help discovering your answer.
It’s no secret we love Morgan Housel. We reference him time and time again because everything he says is spot on. If you don’t know, he has a new podcast and we’re enjoying hearing Morgan every bit as much as we love reading him. In the episode “The Power of Staying Put,” Morgan says, “There are so many times in life where what you do is less important than how long you’ve been doing it for.” It sounds a lot like taking the long view.
