Cover Your Basic Needs

Note to future self…

It’s so important to cover your basic needs AND be aware of this process. If you’re aware that all your basic needs are cover you quickly realize that everything that you desire won’t materially change your reality.

When I refer to basic needs I mean both physical and psychological. Maslow’s hierarchy is a good starting point and it covers all your basic needs and then some.

I feel that a lot of times, we struggle and desire things that will not materially change our lives yet we suffer because we don’t have those things. Being aware of how incredibly lucky we’re is the best reminder I’ve found that everything else I get in life from this point onwards is the cherry on the cake.

That’s it. Now back to work…
