I updated my NetworthIQ entry for Q1. Things look really good. I almost hate saying that because I don't want to jinx it! But basically since I started to be so super organized with my finances in 2008 (after finishing grad school), I've managed to put away a good chunk of money each quarter. So I guess I can be less superstitious because really it's about hard work, the boring day in and day out of making good financial decisions and staying on top of myself to stay organized and on course. I think anyone who manages to save any money at all should take time to feel proud of themselves, because we all know, it's not easy. Most people don't manage to do it at all.
You are reading a very engaging novel and the main character mentions that he wishes he had more money, and you later think to yourself about how he shouldn't go out to eat so often!
