It becomes one when you don’t have the money to spend for expected or unexpected events in your life.
Think of education, income protection, retirement or health. You see, these priorities in life ie., spending for your child’s education, protecting your income, preparing for your retirement or setting up a health fund – all these require money and they involve time.
There’s a saying that the best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. If you have not done it yet, the best time is now. Applying the same principle, if you do not plan for your future now, be prepared to reap the consequences later on.

Principle to learn: Do something today that your future self will thank you for.
