Cool post:

This was my favorite quote:

"More often than not, money will make you fat and lazy and uninteresting. It's no fun starving to death, either, but for many the risk of losing your essence increases with every buck you pack away."

Sometimes I feel like the more financially secure I am, the less motivated I am. So, from one perspective this happened to me. The fear of starvation is a big motivator, but I haven't been afraid of that for a long time.

I think the "out of site / out of mind" approach works well for me. So, I should probably move some of my 'emergency funds' into accounts that don't show up in my quickbooks total worth. Either that, or add my mortgage to Quickbooks.
