You never really learn to prioritise until you find yourself in a difficult situation. Only when facing financial restraint, one would really be thoughtful of his spending. What we tend to do is be thrift and save as much as we can. There’s nothing wrong with this but eventually you are going to have to spend that money. Money is a tool and not an ornament. The question is what to spend it on? What will be worth your money in the end? Here we have listed the things that we think will be worth your money.
1. Good food
Even when being thrift, you should never neglect your bodies’ need for nutrition. Good food keeps you healthy and energetic so it’s a worthy investment. Don’t splurge on junk food. Instead spend your money on the nutrition that your body needs. It will be hard separating what you need from what you want. Good food doesn’t come cheap but they’re always worth it.
Profit – A healthy body (with God’s will)
2. Internet connection
There are tons of things that you could do with an internet connection provided you have the proper devices. No news source updates faster than the internet plus you’re in control of what you see and what you read. You can advertise for free, look for talent, watch TV, listen to the radio, find a long-lost friend, make a call, learn new things and even provide tutorials for others. It’s totally more worth than buying a TV set.
Profit – Just about all the media you need
3. Proper Equipment
Whatever it is that you are doing, there will always be a need for equipment. A photographer needs a camera and a guitarist needs a guitar. You would want to avoid borrowing a friend’s equipment because damaging it would only make you feel guilty for a very long time. Plus it could ruin the friendship if you constantly borrow. It’s good to have your own equipment because you can claim ownership to it. You can do whatever you want and it will always be available for any jobs that you are doing. Take good care of your own equipment because you wouldn’t want to waste your money on unnecessary repairs.
Profit – Ownership and dignity
We all have self-learning capacity but having a teacher accelerates our development (provided you have enough will-power and an excellent teacher). At the gym, you have personal trainers and everywhere else there are always mentors who are willing to share their knowledge for a price. You can’t blame them for charging because they have bills to pay too. It also indirectly drives you to get the most out of them since you’ve paid your dues.
