Many report a greater grip on life once they are proficient at financial planning
Don’t you get bored? This is an old colleague who has seen me write on personal finance for years and years. The question got me thinking—why am I not bored writing about money? I found the answer in my yoga class of all places. Yoga maestro B.K.S. Iyengar did the same poses for over 80 years every day, several times a day, but he did not get bored because each time his pose was a window into a deeper reflection of what that pose was doing to his body and mind. Practice makes you proficient, but beyond proficiency is abhyasa, or study. After you get proficient, then comes the study of what your chosen vehicle shows you about yourself and the world and helps you go deeper and deeper. The meaning of seeing the universe in a drop of water or a grain of sand suddenly becomes clear. So, no, not bored of money and engaging with it yet.
