So simple, yet so profound.
I can testify as to its validity. I feel that Jay and I are perfect examples of a couple who focused on the growing heap.
We’ve always lived within our means.
We cultivated patience and the ability to do without. We still allowed ourselves some extravagances – but they were categorized as such. We went out for dinner, but only once/week. We took the kids on trips (not counting visiting family in Canada), but never more than once/year.
We’ve always put something away for the future.
And, guess what? Before we knew it, the future was practically upon us.
Focus on your growing heap. Keep track of it.
