Learn to overcome some common geek themes: “The Curse of Knowledge”; “Too Smart for my Own Good”; “Too Clever by Half”.

“The Curse of Knowledge”; “Too Smart for my Own Good”; “Too Clever by Half”. As geeks, we probably have heard these expressions in our careers, and have learned to compensate, adapt, or overcome these mental roadblocks in our professional settings. However, many of us have not been able to transform those lessons of overcoming mental roadblocks in our personal lives, ESPECIALLY when it comes to personal finances. Everyone deserves the opportunity to build a secure and comfortable financial future. However, it turns out that it’s actually a pretty tough thing to do. It seems our mind keeps getting in the way. But what if you better understood these mental roadblocks? What would you be able to do with this new knowledge? More to the present, where would you even begin? As our Saturday morning cartoon hero says, “Knowing is half the battle.”
