The very FIRST thing in Personal Finance


Until now, when teaching in Personal Finance, a lot of gurus still emphasize the very first thing is to identify a Goal.  While that is true but there are a few disadvantages with that approach;

  • You may or may not have a clear definite goal to start with
  • It may take a venture itself to find your goal
  • It may require a lot of discipline to keep to a goal
  • Your goal may change over time
  • This method is too academic oriented

By the time you clearly define a goal, the time has passed and in personal finance, time should be your best friend, not foe.
Hence a more practical approach in this century is to just to go ahead and

SAVE FIRST

It doesn't matter who you are, what you do, where you are, which belief you have and how you live;  Just go ahead and put aside a sum of money and save them aside, to anywhere.
