It is easy to underestimate the power of putting a number on an objective or goal that is financial. This is highlighted in a classic book on retirement planning by Lee Eisenberg appropriately called “The Number”! (See book review)
Leaving financial goals without a number and a time frame is more likely to contribute to disappointment than celebration.
One of the tools most widely used by us in helping people become financially organised and ultimately independent, is a form titled “Identifying freedom funds”. You can download a free copy from this site.
Don’t give in to the temptation of postponing completing such a form until you think you have the resources to do so! Filling in the form is the way to make certain that resources will become available! The words of a mentor of mine are ringing in my ears:
“Rather than say – when I have plenty of money it, the reality is, – when I begin managing it, I will have plenty of money!”
So without delay, download the form and start working on the numbers. If you find the form useful, email me and let me know.
