Remember Winnie the Pooh? I do – and not just for his honey-fuelled adventures with his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. Even very small children seem to sense the substance behind A.A. Milne’s “stuffed-with-fluff” cast of characters. In fact, A.A. Milne once famously said that although the characters were based on his young son Christopher Robin’s favorite stuffed toys, he didn’t write Winnie the Pooh for children at all. And maybe that’s why a tubby, honey-loving little bear has continued to resonate with adults and children alike since he was first introduced in the 1920s.
Winnie the Pooh has a certain way about him that is both endearing and enlightening; what he learns in his adventures extends far beyond the confines of the cozy Hundred Acre Wood, creating a philosophy that applies to, well, just about everything. Check out some of his key lessons – and how they apply to our financial lives – in my new post on WiseBread.com: http://bit.ly/KcjZQh
