    The grasshoppers tend to be happier than the ants (until winter comes).

    Is ignorance bliss?

    I sometimes reflect on how my life would be different if I did not catch the personal finance bug.  I would likely be spending more money and saving a lot less.

     

    Would I have found ways to spend the extra?  Would that have made me happier?  Does anyone else ponder these things?

     

    I am sure there are a lot of high income professionals out there who just max a 401k. But with a decent match you would be putting away 2k a year for a 35 year career and end up with ~2M pretax.  Plus home equity and SS could lead to a comfortable retirement.  Especially if you do not know what you are missing.
