Getting to the heart of it

When contemplating any major investment (time, finances, emotion) a trick to get to the psychology behind your own desire is to ask “why” 2-3 times.

I want to make more money. Why?
Because I want freedom of time. Why?
Because I don’t want to miss my son’s baseball games.

Confronting your own psychology this way could save wasted investment in the wrong thing. You’ll feel like a repetitive 5-year old, but you may discover better alternatives to “more money” given what you really want.
