I want to give you quick ways on how to reduce financial chaos in your business finances and you can also use those in your personal finances. I will make this short and actionable and this will be a series of posts and this one is the first one.
Starting to reduce your financial clutter can be overwhelming because just as we heard in last weeks episode with Bob Wheeler and the money nerve, all our money decisions are fueled by our emotions. If we are not aware of how these emotions sabotage us thees emotions often do win and the struggle to wisely manage our money gets bigger and bigger.
When we are not intentional with money or put our head in the sand - things will get worse instead of better. I call this mental and emotional clutter.
And when we don't do anything about it we are experiencing even more negative feelings like shame and fear, which in turn we then gets us to avoid finances even more but the task is still hanging over our head.
On the other hand, if you are proactive and start facing and fixing them head on, that is again self-love and self-care, because it's very unkind to yourself to ignore a brewing problem that then blows up in your face way bigger than it needs to be.
So if you have tasks around your finances that you have been dreading and avoiding, it's time to take care of it, start small, in a few minutes a day. Doing so will give you peace of mind and also relief, again that's self-care and self-love. But more importantly just like I said before, starting to deal with it will help any issue before it ends up costing you even more money, time, and sleepless nights.
You will notice, as you start intentionally paying attention to your money management that small decisions can truly impact your finances for the better. In a few minutes a day or week you can complete a small task to make a big improvement in your financial situation.
