According to the Money Smart author, simplifying doesn't necessarily mean doing without, but rather living a less stressful, more balanced life. It means having more time for the things that bring happiness and balance into day-to-day life. It is a choice Americans should embrace, especially in difficult economic times. “How complicated has your life become over the years? How many things do you do every day, week, and month that you’d rather not do?” asks Hunter, “Look at the things you do out of habit and the things you’ve been convinced to do by others.”
Many Americans equate the consumption and collections of things with happiness. In his book, Hunter asks readers to examine the items that surround them and recognize the things that aren’t needed. “How many things do you own that you don’t use? Do you really need such a big residence? Do you live far from your job and commute hours each day, leaving you tired and with too little time for your family or for yourself? Is each thing you do, each thing you own, worth the price you pay?”
A happy life seldom comes from material wealth. Good health, meaningful relationships, and spending your days in an enjoyable and satisfying way are what really matters most in life. “I don’t think that anyone, at the end of their life, wishes they made more money,” Hunter states “If you make the mistake of trading away the things that matter most for money I believe it will end up among your life’s greatest regrets.”
Combining Hunter’s sixty years of experience and a common sense approach, Money Smart shows readers that they are capable of managing their money better than anyone else. Presenting easy-to-use tools and a clear list of rules to follow, Money Smart teaches readers to make solid, educated decisions so they can effectively eliminate debt, manage their money and make their dreams a reality.
