Day 496 and The Tortoise & the Hare
So tonight's FPU lesson was about investing. For someone stuck on Baby Step #1 (get $1000 in the baby EF), that idea seems so far off! But during the lesson, Dave talks about interviewing a billionaire who gives him two pieces of advice: 1) for Dave to keep his giving spirit and 2) for Dave to remember that in the book The Tortoise & the Hare, the tortoise always wins! For some reason, that was really encouraging to me. We may be plodding along slowly, but we just have to keep trying. It did not get this way overnight, it will not go away overnight. So, here's to the tortoise!
