Financial stress is an almost universal human condition. Perhaps it should be added to the list of things in our lives that are certain: Death, taxes and stressing about money. We live in the most abundant time in human history, so why too is financial stress also so abundant? Is it because we don’t understand how much is enough? Is it because financial management has become too complex? Is it because we live in an instant gratification consumer culture and our good for nothing generation is leading our world to certain doom? Your grandfather might think so, but so did his grandfather and every other grandfather since the beginning of time. Bryan Knobel
I’ve had the opportunity to spend time with a number of the “Millennials” talking about the meaning of wealth and financial success. The blog piece by Bryan Knobel, partially quoted above (the full post is HERE) sums up my experience. They focus on having a healthy relationship with financial assets rather than amassing financial wealth. And forward thinking entrepreneurs like Brian are trying to help.
As you think about your own plans and planning ask yourself how do they help improve the relationship the coming generations will have with those assets. It can be done with some simple additions.
