Suppose you have a cylinder on an ramp and you let it start rolling down. What will be its acceleration? Great question, right? I like this because it brings in many different concepts in introductory physics. Also, I’m not too fond of the way most textbooks solve this problem. Point Mass vs. Rigid Object In […]
Two weeks ago I sent an email talked about some honest truths about looking at your financial picture…. and guess what happened?
Why? Not because you all have it all under control… No– it’s because of what everyone told me who did respond to the email. It sucks to look at this stuff.
About 50 people spilled their guts about having huge mental blocks around money and personal finance including:
I was the same way for years, and even still I struggle with it at times. Quick story:
After my galavant across six countries this spring, it was time to do my expense report for Under30Experiences. (yes, we have expense reports)
I was absolutely *dreading* calculating how much money I had spent. I know it sounds douchey to say that, but this is how these issues start. We’re not allowed to talk about money, and unless we do, we’ll never come clean.
I put off the simple task of reconciling my American Express bill into our accounting system for THREE MONTHS.
Not only was this financially irresponsible, but every time I thought about it, I procrastinated and didn’t want to look at it. It caused me a huge amount of stress and mental energy.
“Sh*t I really need to look at my AMEX bill,” was probably repeated 200x in my head over those three months.
When I realized this mental block could be causing strain on my relationship with my co-founder, I finally cracked down. AND, once I calculated it– which took me only twenty minutes, the amount I had been fearing was thousands less than I made it up to be in my head.
All that anxiety, stress, fear, and bullsh*t for nothing.
In the Under30CEO insiders program we’ve been working a lot on this stuff (opt-in for free here), but seriously, now is the time in our life that we need to do the work.
As I’ve mentioned before, I used to be WAY worse including:
It’s no different from Snoop Dogg saying, “Mind on my money, and my money on my mind”. If all you think about is getting paper, then it’s going to be imprinted in your subconscious to always be seeking financial opportunity.
