So one of the central pillars of the Hippocratic Oath (taken by Doctors) is Primum non nicer or in English:
What does this have to do with your financial planning? Any changes you plan on making financially should follow Primum non nocere, just like for the Doctors.
- Do not harm savings you have built up.
- Do not harm your long-term plans (whatever they might be).
I think making sure you can stay sane with your finances would be important as well. If you are harming yourself worrying about your money, you are not doing any good either.
Question: How other ways do folks to harm to their finances?
