People will compromise on the really important shit in order to save a little money. I, however, am not like that so let me give you two pieces of advice here.
First, know the value of your time. I know that I’ve already said that a bunch of times and you’ll probably hear it from me another time before we’re done because it’s so important. I paid sticker price for the last car I bought. The single reason I did this was because my time is worth a lot more when I’m in the office working than if I’m saving 2 grand haggling over the price of the car. Some people might call me a chump for at least not trying, but I call it smart. I can’t afford to waste my precious time like that.
Secondly, don’t be cheap out on the important stuff. I spend most of my life in my computer chair and in my bed. So I bought the top of the line Herman Miller Aeron and a pimped out Sleep Number mattress. Again, to me, that’s just smart. I want my ass to be happy. A comfortable chair, a good bed and an awesome wife. That’s a perfect recipe for happiness. Everything else you can take in stride and figure out, even if it’s stuff that seems impossible at the time.

“We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one of the most valuable qualities you can acquire. You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.
