As the end of the year is fast approaching, you’re probably thinking of taking some time to kick back and spend time with your loved ones over Christmas and the beginning of the new year. While it’s good to switch off and get some downtime, oftentimes you end up kicking off the new year with a whole lot of work on your plate.
There’s one simple solution to start 2019 off right: don’t wait until you’re back in the office to get yourself organised and ready for next year.
Get into your flow over the Christmas period! Even if you’re busy, take a little time to think about what you accomplished financially in 2018, and what you want to have more control over.
It will be the time to think more deeply about your finances – what makes you comfortable and uncomfortable about money? Would you like to be clearer about your financial affairs? 2019 is the time to change, and venture into the beginning of a freer lifestyle. Here’s a couple things you can do:
- Set Financial Goals: Goals mean progress. While most people’s New Year’s resolutions usually involve trimming a few kilos off the waistline, financial related goals are just as important. Have you thought about planning how much you’d like to have saved at certain intervals throughout the year? How about finally locking in a time to have your loans looked over?
- Branch Out: Set aside your preconceived notions about money and try something different. Has that investment opportunity been staring you down, waiting on you to pull the trigger? Get out of your comfort zone – try having a real and honest conversation with your financial guide about your current situation and what you aren’t happy with. You’d be surprised at what you can accomplish!
