Progress (and choices that align with YOUR vision for YOU life) > Perfection
When it comes to making financial decisions, most of us want to get things exactly correct. We want the RIGHT answers; we think the choices that will bring us to the most wealth are the best ones.
And this makes sense. It’s your money, after all, and you probably don’t want to screw it up!
But aiming for perfection can actually hamstring your progress—and even lead you AWAY from the best financial choices for your goals and the life you would most enjoy experiencing.
In this episode, we talk through what’s truly important to understand if you want to improve the quality of the financial decisions you make every day and for the long term.
