You are the architect and builder of your own life, fortune, destiny.
—ALFRED MONTAPERT, MOTIVATIONAL AUTHOR
Adding buildings to your color groups is an application of a vital financial discipline: delayed gratification. This means exercising patience and waiting for something big to happen at the expense of enjoying yourself in the present. Save (invest) rather than spend. You can’t win Monopoly if you don’t embrace delayed gratification. It’s also pretty tough to get far in life if you spend all you make. You may continue to work hard and earn, but money won’t be working for you as well.
