Throughout life, I have always had goals, but sometimes, those goals did not come to fruition. Looking back to understand why I did not reach certain goals made me realize that it wasn’t that the goal was set too high, but my execution wasn’t there.
Execution is the key for anything in life. Will everything always work when you execute…..probably not, but what is certain is that if you create a goal and have a plan on reaching that goal, you have to execute the plan step by step so that you have a higher chance of reaching your goal.
There is no exception to your financial planning. When you have a financial plan, it’s important to understand that the action steps that you are accountable for, are always executed. Same is to be said about your financial planner, they must execute those action steps that are in their control. It’s also important to note that when your financial planner/advisor is reaching out and holding you accountable, it’s for a good reason….to make sure your goals are met. They hold you accountable because creating a plan and setting goals is very easy, the hardest part and reasons why some goals and plans fail, is because the execution was not there or only done sometimes.
