I’m certain that most of us have made well intentioned New Year’s resolutions in the past , only for all that good intention to come grinding to a halt within the first week or two of the new year.
Amongst the most common resolutions, I fancy that we would find those listed below;
This year I resolve to get fitter
This year I resolve to give up smoking
This year I resolve to lose weight
This year I resolve to return to study
This year I resolve to drink less alcohol
In the finance industry the most frequent resolution I hear is -This year I resolve to get my finances in better order.
So why is it that most of these well intentioned resolutions fail?
I believe that more often than not we fail with our resolutions, because we don’t follow up the “thought bubble” behind the intention with a defined action plan.
I think that most of us would agree that the popular resolutions listed above are all great ideas, however if there is no “how” behind the intention, then more often than not the idea never progresses past first base.
Think of it like this;
How do I get to where I want to go if I have no set of directions as to how to get there?
How do I build a workable monthly budget?
How do I get my finances in better order if I never honestly assess my own position?
How do I improve my capacity to make sound borrowing choices if I don’t really understand loan contracts?
Most importantly, how do I do any of this if I’m not really sure what I’m doing in the first place?
