Most people make short-term and limited decisions without considering how these choices impact things to the right when you’re only looking left. Here’s how to solve that problem.
Rebroadcast: We open this episode with a quick update on the coronavirus scare, recent market volatility, and how we think about the best course of action for the future. Then, we hop into this replay of Episode 15, which feels extremely timely — because it’s all about remaining focused on your long-term strategy rather than giving in to the emotional distraction of short-term, in-your-face-right-now events.
If we could compare life to walking through a forest, we could say that you pass a lot of trees along the way. And most people tend to obsess over the nearest tree.
It’s just human nature: you focus on the tree nearest to you and you lose sigh of that entire forest that is your life.
In this episode of the podcast, we explore how proper planning, deliberation, and insight allows you to step back, see more, and better understand where you are now in relation to where you want to go.
The decisions you make right now should be in the context of everything that’s happening now and the future. You need to understand that the way in which you use your money and the choices you make impact you life now and down the road.
Looking at the forest means taking a step back and understanding how everything is interconnected — and how to make decisions around that.
Don’t obsess over tactics. This show will explain how to take a step back and build a strategy first. Jump into the conversation here:
