The value


It may sound obvious, but you have to work out whether it’s more important to hang on to the cash or spend it to acquire the value on offer. Of course, you should look at the available alternatives, whether they offer sufficient features at a lower cost, whether they’re of an acceptable level of quality, whether they’re available in the time frame you have in mind.

When you’re done with the substitute options, think also about the other uses you could put the cash towards – things you can’t do with the money because it’s been used here. Along the way, you’ll probably muse on what would happen if this turns out to be a bad choice or a wrong headed idea in the first place. The normal soup.

Is this what you want to do?

Decide. Be clear. Move forward.

Skippy strategy: The real question … is this the value you want?
