One more (The Financial Athlete #48)

“Ask yourself: ‘Can I give more?’ The answer is usually ‘Yes’.” – Paul Tergat

During track practice in high school we had to run around the track with no idea how much more running we had to do on that day. After running about a mile someone would pass the coach and ask, “How many more laps?” He’d always replied, “One more.” In reality, we could have 4, 8, or 16 more laps to go, but he wanted us only to think about “one more”.

Tell yourself, “one more” every month you set money aside to invest and don’t worry about how much more you need to invest. “One more!”

“Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.” – Vince Lombardi
