There are two types of people – those who are organized and those who aren’t. Which do you fall under? How about with your finances? It’s extremely important to have your finances organized. In fact, I believe that a lack of organization is one of the top reasons that people do not reach the peak of their financial potential. So, are you ready to get organized? Here we go!
PART ONE Understand why you are doing this in the first place
Let’s face it. We are all extremely busy. The last thing we need to do is initiate another paperwork process just for the sake of what “might” happen. I believe, however, that this process is an extremely valuable step toward maximizing one’s financial potential. If you take the time to complete the steps in this series, you will discover areas where your financial plan is lacking AND also where you are winning (which is very satisfying to see).
Here are some reasons to get organized financially:
- Control: It is hard for the finances to run out of control when you are focusing this intently on your financial affairs
- Improved financial focus: We tend to improve that which we focus our attention on
- We will die someday: Our family will appreciate a clearly organized set of financial affairs
Organization and a great financial plan are two of the key reasons that Jenn and I have been able to experience financial freedom!
