RULE 55: Have A Set Time Of The Day To Work On Your Wealth Strategy

Linda Fash Ajala, Pioneer, City Eatery Business in Nigeri

You have to have
a life as well as gaining prosperity. It is my observation that happy, wealthy
people’s financial planning follows a similar set of four principles:


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. They set
targets then get on with it.
2. They don’t
tinker too much.
3. They tend to
work on their financial planning at the same time of day (I don’t mean everyone
works at say 9am but that each person tends to favor a particular time of day
whether it’s 10:30 in the morning or midnight).
4. They are able
to take a break from their financial planning and have a life outside it – it
keeps them refreshed and interesting. 

“You can work for a bit and then take a break, put
it behind you for the day and go back to it, at the same time of course, the
next day Bit by bit, things will improve. Believe me; I’ve been here before
you”.

The reason you
need a set time of day is twofold. Firstly, it makes sure you actively manage
your wealth rather than looking at it once a year and thinking ‘Oh dear’ and
conversely it means you don’t overdo it and spend all day tinkering (which as
we’ve said is a bad idea). And secondly, it means you can take advantage of
your natural biorhythms and put in the effort when you are at your brightest.
If you are a morning person, you’ll want to get your planning in early. If you
are more of an owl, then an evening slot will take advantage of your sharpest
mental acuity.
The other big
advantage of having a set time of day is that you can plan for it, work it into
your diary and make time for it; if you don’t, it can get forgotten or the time
used for other things. If, for example, you always spend half an hour on your
plan first thing after breakfast, then it gets to be a regular function and one
you feel oddly uncomfortable missing – yes, even on holiday
Working on your
prosperity plan at the same time of day – and for the same shortish length of
time – means you can break things down into manageable chunks and not get
overwhelmed. You can work for a bit and then take a break, put it behind you
for the day and go back to it, at the same time of course, the next day Bit by
bit, things will improve. Believe me; I’ve been here before you.
