Yesterday’s show ran a theme of a penny saved is a tax free penny earned and how that compounds when invested outside the systems of taxation. I love this sort of individual liberation thinking. Then today I answered a question about a stove I mentioned last week. You can read about that here on the Nine Mile Farm Blog.
The basic take away is often you can acquire multiple items instead of an “all in one item” in doing so you will reduce or keep your cost the same while gettting greater functionality, flexibility, performance and redundancy.
While some of this is common sense, it benefits us to look deeper than that. The reason is common sense is the application of knowledge. Most of us know it is common sense to use a Phillips screw driver on a Phillips screw, but if you didn’t know it existed, you would likely make best use of the most usable strait screw driver.
To apply common sense the knowledge in that situation must be sufficient for the question or problem. And at times we can ask ourselves questions to remind us of what we know or help us to see what we do not know, so we know how to research the additional required knowledge.
