Importantly, in the red you never just spend – you are investing in a chosen lifestyle, motor vehicle, experience, business, property and so on.
This perspective enables you to hold appropriate freedom around investing in your chosen lifestyle, which is an important factor in the balance.
A note on the green.
Significant benefits may result when you invest a certain amount of time in the green.
Parents are so aware of this they send their children to school up until 16 to 18 years of age, or about 20% of their life. With further study this investment is even greater.
During this time, parents often immerse themselves in the blue and red, ignoring their personal needs for development and planning. Foregoing the valuable green for growth investment allows things to get out of balance.
