Anything difficult in life that's worth doing will always have hidden obstacles. Projects will take more time and cost more money than you thought they would. Accomplishments will take longer to achieve.
That's all part of the game.
But one thing we can do to avoid a lot of needless obstacles is to gain advice from people who've been there before, whether in person or via media.
This is easier now than ever.
It's 6 months into 2019 and most people have let their goals go by the wayside.
In this episode, I discuss a method I'm using to stay on top of my goals and focus on what needs to be done to get them accomplished.
Too many people focus on results. Success isn't about results at all. It's about what you do to get those results.
One of the biggest problems people have is that they expect instant success. Success doesn't come from just hitting home runs. It comes from doing the work, day in day out.
I am a complete financial idiot. Seriously.
Throughout my life, it's always seemed like I never had enough.
Well, in 2019, the year that I turn 40, I've decided to change all that.
So I've committed myself to learning everything I can about personal finance.
In this episode, I take you through what I've learned and how I'm prepping myself for retirement.
I also give out some advice to the young military service members who listen to the show about how they can be financially set once they reach my age.
Note: As I state above, I am an idiot. So nothing I say in this episode should be considered financial advice. If you really want to learn about money you should read:
1) Tony Robbins, Money Master the Game
2) Andrew Hallam, The Millionaire Teacher
3) Benjamin Graham, The Intelligent Investor
