The way you do anything is the way you do everything. Our priorities show up in our wallets and on our calendar. Turn 2020 into the year you started investing in yourself and learning about yourself. Emotional decision making, especially when it involves money, may be hurting your life. You may not realize it, but most of your financial decisions are made with emotion. Even when you take some time to "think about it," you're just allowing your brain to come up with the logical rationale it needs to support a decision you have already made.
Learn how to make decisions from a place of calm, strategy, predictability and reliability. This creates a platform for your short-term choices to be in alignment with your long-term goals. All it takes is a budget and a personalized financial performance plan. Successful habits are more about structure than ability. Intentionality is the greatest predictor of achievement. Hire a financial coach to help you get started and peace is on the way. Money is not the most important thing in life, but the most important things in life are affected when it's mismanaged and what good is money if you don't use it to make your life better?
