Next, it’s important to think creatively about how you can manage risk, and luck in money matters. This may sound like an easy task, but we underestimate the amount of thought required to successfully plan for luck and risk in money matters. Some ideas for planning include regularly saving some of your earnings so that you have enough capital when the time comes for risky investments or major purchases. You could also keep separate bank accounts for different uses such as saving up for a house purchase or putting extra cash towards monthly bills such as rent or utilities.

Wise decisions regarding risk and luck in money matters will also help you make more money. The decisions YOU make regarding risky investments can make or lose significant sums of money over time. For example, if you choose to gamble away all of your earnings on risky games, no matter how well you do your gambling may never pay off enough to cover all of your losses plus compound interest rates. Conversely, if you choose not to take any risks with your funds, no matter how little they earn they will eventually accumulate enough interest income to provide for all of their associated costs plus compound interest rates as well (this is called “saving”). It’s always best to do what makes the most sense based on sound analysis, no matter what field you’re working in, so apply these lessons when planning how best to handle risk, and luck in money matters!


Anyone who has ever made or lost some cash knows that thinking creatively about how best to manage this aspect of their lives is both necessary and beneficial. It’s never too late or difficult to learn what every smart person already knows— planning is always beneficial!
