Try Doing Nothing: But Not About Your Money

PDF: News Letter 2019-03-01

We live in a world where being busy is considered a badge of honor. In fact, many of us, including me, have difficulty turning ourselves ‘off’. The constant stimulus of technology is difficult to avoid. But, just as our bodies need sleep, our brains need some downtime too. Doing nothing can be the best thing we can do for our overall health. If an unplugged vacation isn’t in the cards for you, there are steps you can take to work some nothing into your daily routine.

The one aspect of life you can’t "do nothing" about however is your money. Being proactive with your financial plan, along with taking the time to nurture your mental health may help you to better understand your long-term financial goals. Together, we can work out a plan that will help you to achieve them.

We are going to close out with a quote from President, Ronald Reagan, he said,

“I don't believe in a fate that will fall on us no matter what we do. I do believe in a fate that will fall on us if we do nothing.”

Wise words on fate and doing nothing.
