Being Better Than Yesterday

Being Better Than Yesterday

Accepting reality is hard, but it's important to acknowledge and accept who we are and where we are in life.

While we try to get in shape, be better organized or more productive, we get overwhelmed with the sheer number of things that must be done, as there is so much to be done at all times. We end up competing with others and with our younger self, and fail to realize that we just have to be a better person than we were yesterday.

  1. Restructure your life by pressing the reset button. Analyze your money flow and find out the leakages. It even makes sense to move to a cheaper home, locality or city.
  2. Do not compare yourself with others as you are comparing your internal worst with their external best. Everything is relative and statistical comparisons are even worse.
  3. Keep things simple, doable and short.
  4. Seek support or mentorship from friends and colleagues.

If we have to master the domains of money, health, career, and relationships, we have to start from where we are.

  1. Take care of yourself with a good diet, regular exercise, and being stress-free.
  2. Take stock of the situation, performing an inventory covering your current financial situation.
  3. Know where you want to go, how you want to improve your financial life. Having a reason for the change, a personal mission statement, or internal motivation, helps move in that direction.

One of the most challenging aspects to change your finances is getting started.

  • You may have an idea.
  • You may want to read more.
  • You may talk and talk about doing this and that, but then never follow through.

However, don't procrastinate - get going today and learn as you go. Sit down and create a spreadsheet of all your bills, income, and any extra spending. Once you've listed everything, open your investment account and start saving.
