Have you planned 2024 yet?

Have you planned what you want to achieve in 2024 yet? Now is the right time.

Planning for anything you want to achieve is of utmost importance if it is to be achieved. There is a saying – “Fail to plan, plan to fail”  

This is cliche but yet quite profound. If you want to get anything done you have to plan to do it and make time for it. This is how any goal is achieved. Planning should take place on a daily basis so that you can get the most out of each day. No matter how rich you are, you only get 24 hours a day like everyone else. You need to make the most of them. Anything from jobs around the house that need to be done, to important milestones at work that need to be completed, they need to be listed, dated and completed in the required time. People that set daily tasks/goals are 80% more successful than those who don’t. 

The same can be said for our finances. Instead of putting your much needed investing on the backburner for the next six months, why not document what you need to achieve, date it and set a time frame as to when it needs to be completed. That way you have a better chance of it getting done. If you want to give the goal of investing a bit of heart, then why not also document WHY you want to achieve that goal, and what steps you need to take to achieve it.  

As I have always said, everyone needs to invest. But not everyone will. 

Here are some simple steps to help you set and achieve your goals.

1. Write the goal down

2. Date the goal at time of writing it down

3. Set a time when it needs to be achieved by

4. Write down a brief plan on what steps you will take to achieve your goal

5. Just get started and don’t procrastinate
