Financial Intelligence Will Improve Your Life

The rewards for “getting it” have never been so immense, and the penalties for financial ignorance have never been so stiff.

— Niall Ferguson

Money mastery is not hard. It's the lies we believe about what money can do for us and the dumb decisions we make out of ignorance that cause so much misery. Once the misery sets in, then personal finance and money management can take on high levels of difficulty, to the point we are overwhelmed.

I hate to think what life would be like if there were no rules. From morning to night, every day of our lives, we live by some kind of rules.

Most families have rules of the house — expectations of conduct and decorum that are expected of all those residing therein, with age-appropriate consequences for failure to follow the rules.

If you've ever built or remodeled a home, you know something about rules in local building codes, which I will admit that to a layperson can appear to be a total waste of time and money. Still, those rules make for much better, safer, and more pleasant living conditions when all is said and done.

Like guideposts that mark the sides of the road, rules keep us from wandering off into danger. They offer assurance that we're on the right path.
