The Art and Science of Spending Money
Money matters are complex.
They involve a human factor that often goes beyond logic.
It's personal, messy, and emotional. Experts have extensively studied this aspect, known as behavioral finance.
However, most studies focus on investment behaviors.
Welch's story dives deeper into the psychology of money.
It shows that your spending habits can expose a more profound struggle.
It can reveal what you value in life, who you choose to spend time with, why you picked your career, and the attention you seek from others.
A story is often shared in self-help books.
It's about a man who wants to quit smoking.
He paid for a billboard ad.
His photo was on it.
He also made a promise on it.
If anyone saw him smoking, he would give them $10,000.
If you often delay tasks, it's time to establish solid accountability.
You're familiar with the discomfort and embarrassment that comes from constant evasion.
You can use a tool that pushes you to take action and complete a task you've been avoiding.
Allow yourself this choice.

1 Atom of Reflection::
It feels like yesterday that I had my first child. It was three years ago, and he now wants me to get to sleep and won’t leave my arm while I’m done with this issue of The Owl and The Beetle. My wife candidly took this picture, and I love it so much that I’m breaking our rock-solid rule of “no pictures of our children will be published online.”
Sometimes there can be exceptions.
Time goes by really fast. The longer the timeframe, the faster it goes.
