Delay

Capitalism is based on the concept of buying stuff. Lots and lots of stuff.

With covid-19, I have found out that I was spending a lot of money for things that I can live without. If I can live without those things, it’s not necessary for me to buy them.

If we can learn to control what we spend, we can learn to save enough to build a second income from safe investment.

« Freedom is not procured by a full enjoyment of what is desired, but by controlling that desire. »

– Epictetus

Delay the enjoyment will help you to build the second income that will give you the time to enjoy even more of what you desire.

Learn to Delay and you’ll learn one of the basic of getting rich.

About Serge ‘Mage’ Cote Why do I write? I believe in the butterfly effect. As small my influence may be on the planet, it is still influence. I want to orient it for the better. I write my book with the idea of bringing something good into this world. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke I want my books to be a good place to be. A place that you visit often and feel good about it. I want my books to bring good energy so the readers will take action to make this world a better place. I want my books to guide those who don’t know why they feel so bad about their life. I want my books to be there after I’ll be gone. I want people to come back to them and use them in a positive way. “The greatest use of a life is to spend it on something that will outlast it.” – William James

  1. Agreed. Seems to me that modern society is based around the concept of instant gratification: “I want it and I want it NOW!” To take back control we need to ask ourselves two simple questions: (1) can we wait until later for our next treat / luxury, and (2) (more importantly) can we do without this extravagance altogether? Life doesn’t have to be all about spend, spend, spend!
