Three Questions That Can Change Your Spending Habits

by Andy Hough on August 20, 2007

The personal finance book that has had the most influence on me is “Your Money or Your Life” by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin. If I had faithfully followed all the steps in the book from the time I first read it I could be retired by now.

 One of the most powerful steps in the book is the Three Questions That Will Transform Your Life.  These three questions should be asked when evaluating your spending. They are 1. Did I receive fulfillment, satisfaction, and value in proportion to life energy spent? 2. Is this expenditure of life energy in alignment with my values and life purpose? 3. How might this expenditure change if I didn’t have to work for a living? By applying these questions when evaluating your spending you most likely will not only reduce your spending but change the thing you spend your money on.
