I can remember when I first started my company retirement savings many years ago. I had a small 401K and I watched it every day. It went up and down on a regular basis and was quite confusing for me at the time.
The truth about me is that I am not a patient person. I wanted to see my money go up, never down. That is not very realistic for most of us when investing.
I think of my time much like I do money. If you follow me you have heard the saying, “you can make more money, but you can’t make more time”. Every day I get up head out the door to work with my number one goal to move forward everyday. I don’t have it written down, I just put my head down and plow forward.
My system is flawed. How in the world can I see the progress everyday when I am that close? How can I compare each days effort. I go to work, put in my time and go home. You may be making progress and cannot see it.
This is why you document your goals, have a measurement, benchmarks and a date of completion set.
Review your goals, keep on track, adjust your goals as needed.
I only want success for you.
