Pretending You Won the Lottery

BeachLiz Pulliam Weston writes for msn Money, and has always been a sane and practical voice for the balance between living life and paying for life.  She recently posted this column:  Pretend You’ve Won the Lottery.  She makes a good case that this little fantasy is a useful few minutes of your time.

Fantasizing what you would do if you didn’t have to drudge through the ordinary and pay all the bills allows you to identify what is truly important to you.  In today’s pseudo-psycho babble, that means:  find your bliss.

Guess what it turns out to be?  Overwhelmingly the responses are:

  • Pay off debt
  • Help family
  • Donate to charity
  • Pursue your passion (usually travel – but not me!  I get car sick on moving sidewalks)

It turns out that these dreams are within reach without the lottery.  The column is definitely worth your time to read.
