Hard decisions now make the future easier

From Farnam Street:

And in the same way compounding interest increases our bank balance, better decisions produce exponentially better results the more of them we make. Hard decisions today, made well, prepare us to make decisions more easily in the future.

What hard decisions are you making today? Today I said no to much of the work I’d do for me because in this season I need to focus on billable hours and build up the emergency fund that my wife and I want.

Overall, I’m doing less things I’m in love with, and more things that I enjoy but don’t love.

The thing is that a big buffer of cash helps purchase my time later so I can finish that marketing book I started talking about in January.
