Another year, another dollar -and in the case of this year, lots of them. Strong gains by equity markets have spread Christmas Cheer to everyone and we’re ringing in the New Year on a high note!
2020 marks the beginning of a new decade and with it new challenges and opportunities. Yet, true to a view of the longer term, certain principles remain constant when it comes to finances, including:
- The importance of goal setting
- Breaking down the big picture into more manageable smaller pictures
- Tracking your progress over time
- Being realistic
- Defining goals in terms of values, not merely dollars
- Relying on your individual support network (spouse, family)
- Recognizing progress
The attached article from Forbes found here summarizes each of these points, but does so in the context of New Years’ resolutions.
