“Stop comparing yourself to your neighbor and your friend and get down to your core values and execute on them,” advises Farrell. “The happiest people I meet measure themselves against their own objectives.”
Bottom line: If you’re a saver, the way the government is handling the mortgage crisis may change the way you vote. It shouldn’t change the way you manage your money.
