#41 – The Advantages of Experiencing Financial Organization
The last few weeks have been really “bleh” for me. Apart from launching my course (which has been a great learning experience and fun to do in general!), in terms of life outside of that launch I’ve felt overwhelmed, demotivated and generally out of alignment.
But I kept going until last weekend I knew I had to change something. I felt that if I didn’t take control, I’d be draining my energy levels too much and become too used to the situation. And I mean that not in a positive way. But when things are bleh and I accept the situation too much, then I know I’ll stop taking action and get accustomed to a below-average life. And I don’t want that.
I want to wake up every day feeling in control, energetic and excited to do whatever I have (and want!) to do that day and ready to make an impact.
So on Saturday I took a moment to analyze what my problem really was and I realized it was a lack of organization. In the last few weeks I’d allowed my living room to become a complete disaster with stuff everywhere that wasn’t supposed to be there. Seriously, you could hardly see the table in there, it was just stressful to simply walk down in the morning and see so much stuff everywhere! I spent most of that day just tidying up and I felt so much better after.
And I realized it is EXACTLY the same with financial (dis)organization. If you don’t feel in control of your finances (both your expenses as well as a long-term plan or the direction you are going in), it’s hard to feel excited and aligned with what’s going on and feel that you’re moving forward.
Which is why I wanted to share my thoughts about financial organization with you in this episode of the Financial Harmoney Podcast.
