  • There’s Nothing Wrong with What You Bought 5 Years Ago

    Written By .

    If you have something that already works for you, think carefully before buying the next big thing.

    If you have something that works well for you, but you see they have a new gizmo out, what do you do with the old one? Could you have spent the money to gain a new capability you didn’t have before?

    I like to stay with what’s already working for me, unless it will revolutionize the way I do things. Now, there are things that need an upgrade that aren’t working well for me, but if I’m fine with what I have, then I can allocate those resources elsewhere.
