How to Get Your Sh*t Together, Part V: Financial

If you want to get your shit together and find freedom in today's world, you need to play the money game. And you need to play it well.

Many of us realize this. The term "financial freedom" is found almost everywhere, yet most people do not handle their money well. Not only is there a lack of sincere education surrounding matters of finance, but bad habits are actively encouraged.

Mindless spending, consumerism, unquestioned accumulation of debt, buying unnecessary things that don't add value to your life. The next insanely expensive smartphone that has two new features you will never use. I could go on.

In today's world, what we often think of as normal isn't. In what universe is purchasing a sofa on credit at a high interest rate to be paid off over 18 months a good deal? (A goddamn sofa!)

Faced with such madness, what can you as an individual do?
