We’re going to take a look at life’s margins and why life is always won at the margin.
Margin is what’s left over after all your time is spent, your bills are paid, energy is spent. What is crazy when you go down this rapid hole is that much of our everything in life is already accounted for before we leave the house after college. 1/3 of our life will be spent sleeping. 1/3 of our money will be spent on taxes. Another 1/3 of that money will be spent on housing. 1/3 of our time is spent working.
Here's a simple example of why this, doing the small things well, matters. Susan and Sarah are both 35 and earn $150,000 a year. They are exactly the same, except Susan saves 7% of her income while, Sarah saves 5%. Given a long term average return of 7%, 20 years, and a $50,000 starting point, Susan ends with $637,578, while Sarah ends with $510,694. Susan saved just $250 more per month, and ended up with over $150,000 more.
