We all have big dreams, maybe you want to travel, or quit your job to pursue your true passion. Whatever your dream, often the one thing standing in the way of us and realising our dreams is fear and money. While fear can be dealt with by shifting our focus, money might not be so easy. How Much Is Enough? is a brilliant book that will help you align your financial planning with your values and dreams. The book is divided into three parts:
- Part 1 – The Bridge of Well-being: This section deals with the meaning of money and defining what happiness means to you.
- Part 2 – Wealth Habits: As the title suggests, here the authors confront how our wealth habits affect the process of wealth creation. There’s a great focus on taking the long view when investing.
- Part 3 – Wealth and Well-being: In the last part, we tie together parts 1 and two, aligning our values with proper financial planning in order to live a meaningful life and have finances that don’t give us sleepless nights
While this isn’t a do-it-yourself guide, it’s very helpful in helping you map out your financial plan according to what you hope to achieve. You’ll also be able to know what to ask of your financial adviser because your financial goals are clearer.
