“Automate your priorities and they will happen…automatically!” It sounds like a joke, but it’s such a powerful financial planning tool.
l’ve also heard it said this way…”direction, not intention, determines your destination.”
Here are some common financial priorities that can be easily automated:
- Contribute to or max out your retirement plan through work
- Save for travel or home renovations via a separate savings account
- Gifts to charities that you want to support
- Pay down debt
When you know that your most critical priorities are happening in the background, you are better able to enjoy your life…and the rest of your money!
