The Psychology of Money: Timeless lessons on wealth, greed, and happiness

Doing well with money isn’t necessarily about what you know. It’s about how you behave. And behavior is hard to teach, even to really smart people.

Money—investing, personal finance, and business decisions—is typically taught as a math-based field, where data and formulas tell us exactly what to do. But in the real world people make them at the dinner table, or in a meeting room, where personal history, your own unique view of the world, ego, pride, marketing, and odd incentives are scrambled together.

In The Psychology of Money, award-winning author Morgan Housel shares 19 short stories exploring the strange ways people think about money and teaches you how to make better sense of one of life’s most important topics.

  1. Sadly because I work for Tiller I can’t win any of these books, but I’ll still share a couple of my financial goals for the second half of 2021 to get the party started:

    • I’m setting aside $50/week to save up for skiing school for both kids
    • I need to change banks for my primary checking account
    • I’m going to keep learning and dabbling with NFTs and crypto this summer - going beyond bitcoin.

    Good luck to all who enter, and here’s to happy reading!

  2. So here is my saving and financial goals for the 2021

    *I want to pay off all my credit cards with in a couple of months

    *I got my saving goals using capital

    And this is it so far.

    Thank you

  3. My 2H goal is to finally get my Ostrich head out of the hole in the ground and plan for what I have to do beyond retirement savings- hello College bills x3!

  4. My goals for the rest of 2021:

    • Add another $6k to my savings
    • Transfer an old 403b account to a new investment account
    • Go back to basics: do a better job of truly sticking to my budget and not moving expenses from different categories around. I haven’t been doing a great job in the last few months of actually sticking to my plan.

    Also proud to say that I met my goal of entirely paying off some credit card debt I racked up a few years ago in Feb. of this year. Yay! That was a huge weight off my shoulders.

  5. My overall goal for 2021 is to strike the right balance between paying down my private student loans and saving/investing. (I was previously putting all extra money towards student loans while neglecting my long-term saving goals)

    • Refinance my student loans to a lower interest rate and higher monthly payment to pay off sooner.

    • Invest the remaining money (maximize IRA contributions, keep a healthy emergency fund, and have a general investing account)
