What Impresses Me The Most Is…

… not how much you earn, but how much you save.

…not saving $10,000 yearly with an annual income of $100,000, but saving $10,000 with an annual income of $20,000.

…not how much money you have in your portfolio, but your time-weighted returns against the performance of the market.

…not the numbers in your bank account, but what you have done to multiple those numbers.

…not by the car you drive or the house you live in, but how contented you can be while having less.

…having to stop working by choice, and not because you can’t afford to.

…not to overestimate your capabilities, but to be able to stay within your lane of expertise through times of adversity.

  1. I know a salesperson-friend after being advised by me that it is more expediant saving than on earning that he slacks off. When his wife chides him, he uses this conventional wisdom that earning is less important!
