    I go one step further, I have a physical check sent to my address, so I literally turn it into mailbox money.

    Opening up a mailbox to a check never gets old, especially if you don't attribute that check to some type of work, or job. It's like winning the lottery. This makes the process very tangible, as opposed to seeing your digital balance increase by X dollars.

    Likewise, I like taking option gains for the month and transferring that to CASH.

    When you put the gains into CASH, it really brings it into REALITY.

    Again, digital numbers on a screen can make the whole process intangible and distant, kinda like gaming chips at a casino. We don't want that!

    It boils down to what MJ talks about on TMFL, about becoming a producer instead of being a consumer. Really one of the things that stood out the most for me.

    Great post!

    Holy $h1t at the picture of all that dough! That looks like quite a bit of autonomy to me.

    Yea, it looks like a ton of money (it's only about $8K) which is why I do that. It gives perspective to effort and their corresponding results. Without making it tangible, I'm left with a number of a computer monitor which feels, dare I say, distant and fake.
