Oh Well and the Bottom Line!

August 23rd, 2008 at 07:20 am


For me, it’s important to have a bottom line. A bottom line keeps things in perspective. This is what guarantees the “And Loving it part of my journey.

The bottom line for me is do not charge. Anything other than that is just “Oh Well“. This kind of thinking keeps a smile on my face no matter what happens. Some Oh Wells that I have faced recently are:

Washer repairs (Oh Well)
Chimney repairs when I thought it only need cleaned. (Oh well)

Little truck car repairs. (Oh Well)
Couldn't put any extra on the focus loan (Oh Well)
Had to use part of our EF (Oh Well)

Because of having established a bottom line it’s easier to say Oh Well.

Do you have a bottom line in your money journey?

    I agree, no charging for me either

    The bottom line for me is that, becus i've put saving, mainly thru 401k contributions, on auto-pilot, i know that no matter what i always "pay myself first."

    15% to the 401k and a fully-funded IRA every year is always non-negotiable. My mortgage pre-payments are also a must-do each month, no matter what.
