Making Time For Wealth In The New Year

Mar 16, 2008
Financial success, like all things in life, depends on taking the time to devote to projects, and managing it well. Wealth creation is not something that happens on its own, it is something that happens when a pointed effort is made to see the project through.

Time To Manage Your Financial Life

For many people, financial management is an afterthought; it is something that is done in reaction to a lacking financial situation. Wealth creation is not thought of as a proactive step towards financial freedom, which is in some ways ironic since the most effective and easiest route to financial freedom is to start with a solid plan to build wealth and gain financial freedom.

Even still, it is never too late to start anew and rededicate oneself to financial wellness. But to effect any real change, the time has to be set aside to devote to matters of wealth creation.

The most important step to take is to set aside time that is strictly devoted to building wealth. When wealth creation is made a goal rather than a reactionary measure, it becomes a reality.

Efforts In Reverse

After the time has been made to attend to financial wealth-building efforts, a plan needs to be put in place. The plan must consist of both long- and short-term goals that can be broken down into smaller, more manageable tasks and achievable benchmarks.

The best way to clearly define the goals and steps needed to create wealth is to look at the project in reverse. Following through on a year-long plan will ensure that this time next year, the financial picture will be much better.

- Start with a goal for the year, an achievement of a certain wealth-creation effort, a dollar figure of savings or investment income

- Break annual goals into monthly efforts.

- Further break down monthly goals into weekly goals, and then daily projects.

Two things are key to time management and setting wealth creation goals: one is to break projects down into smaller, manageable tasks, which also helps efforts as achievement of even small goals creates a sense of accomplishment and progress; the other, and most important key is commit to the time and make it happen. Any devotion shows a commitment that will translate into success in creating wealth, and any small financial gain is better than no gain at all (or worse, loss).

Financial Goals For the New Year

Goals and projects undertaken in an effort to create wealth will be highly personal and dependent on individual factors. In closing, here are a few goals worth considering for those who wish to really change their financial situation and enjoy success in building wealth (and ultimately financial freedom) this year.

- Read and learn - read a variety of wealth creation information and learn about the different financial programs; this is an ongoing goal that should always be included as part of any effective financial plan.

- Set savings goals - the wealthy are excellent savers, but the general population is not; simply learning to save can make a very big impact on financial freedom.

- Learn to invest - there are many wealth-building programs that teach easy ways to invest without risking it all and without being a stock market expert.

- Build skills - certain skills are essential to success in finance; learning what those skills are, and taking steps to develop them, are the first steps towards achieving financial freedom.

- Personal goals - the point of wealth creation is to have the money to finance the lifestyle desired. Include achieving personal goals as part of financial goal-setting.

- Enter a program - any 'average' man or woman can learn to make money and create lasting streams of sustainable wealth; on their own, though, wealth creation will remain elusive and difficult. The guidance of a good wealth building program can make all the difference in the world.
