Since ancient times, proverbs, adages, and oral history have provided WORDS OF WISDOM from which we all might learn valuable lessons. This time of year many often create budgeting tactics in hopes of a successful new year. FROM THE CORNER HOME OFFICE presents a guide for preparing 2023 budgets.
A BUDGET IS MERELY A PLAN. PLANS CHANGE ON A REGULAR BASIS
A budget can be created in several arenas:
There is a better possibility for success by planning ahead. Being prepared is often a key factor in accomplishing goals. Meeting the future by “the seat of your pants” does not work well.
A BUDGET IS TELLING YOUR MONEY WHERE TO GO INSTEAD OF WONDERING WHERE IT WENT
When you plan in advance how to spend or where to save your money, you are taking control of the financial aspect of your life. This ensures that wisdom and discipline will prevail.
JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE DOING MORE DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE GETTING MORE DONE
Time can disappear very quickly. It keeps moving and waits for no one. Realistically thinking about how to use time wisely helps things to get done and deadlines to be met.
IT IS HEALTH THAT IS THE REAL WEALTH, NOT PIECES OF GOLD AND SILVER
Meal planning can make or break the quality of life for a family. By budgeting for nutritious meals, family members then travel the road to good health.
NO ONE PLANS TO FAIL - THEY FAIL TO PLAN
Scheduling activities and making advance plans will prevent those activities from becoming absent from the family calendar. Preparation provides a balance of the desired activities in each person’s life.
Remember to budget or plan the component parts of life to be successful. Quality of life will be balanced and each family member will thrive.
