Welcome to my blog!By Randell Tiongson on June 9th, 2009
Many people goals. Having goals helps one achieve success in whatever it is that they do in life. People, like many corporations, have termed goals – short, medium and long term goals. For some people they begin the year with plans and goals… for many corporations, they have annual planning.
Question is, how many of our plans really materialize? Just like people, many corporation are just as bad as seeing their goals come true. I personally attended many annual planning and we get to accomplish much during the planning process, however, only a fraction of what we really plan ever becomes accomplished.
On a personal level, many of our plans has a price tag – car, home, business, travel, aspirations for children and the like. Many of us just realizes that our visions and goals never really bears fruit and we just wondered that time passed us by asks the question “what happened?”. Chances are, the reason we did not achieve our original aspirations was because we couldn’t pay the price for our dreams. Many times we started well but forgot to ‘follow-through’ with what we want.
We give our goals through thinking but we often stop at that. In personal finance, we can quantify those goals and come up with a general plan on how to achieve said goals. I like to believe that personal finance is not rocket science and that everyone can achieve financial freedom if he so chooses to. We need to be deliberate in crafting our goals and we have to be as deliberate in achieving our goals through consistent and predictable actions.
This blog is dedicated to helping people achieve their goals – not through vague ‘cut & paste’ articles but rather through practical and sound advices that are well, common sense.
