I recently heard someone say “don’t measure success or failure by the outcome but by the wisdom of your decision that led to that outcome.”
Said another way: we can not control the outcome, but we CAN make wise decisions with the information we have available to us.
This principle makes perfect sense, but it can be hard to live out. We naturally focus on outcomes and results and spend our energy trying to change them.
It’s especially hard with our money. We can’t control the investment markets, the future, how long we live, or what our kids do with our money when we are gone.
Let’s focus on making wise decisions in every area of life and experience more freedom as a result!
