Quote by MORGAN HOUSEL - Deepstash

Long-term financial planning is essential. But things change - both the world around you, and your own goals and desires. It is one thing to say, "We don't know what the future holds."

It's hard to make enduring long-term decisions when your view of what you'll want in the future is likely to shift.
