The new year gives the opportunity to start all over, correct the mistakes of the previous year, and chart new courses for life ahead. Three hundred and sixty-five days is no joke, hence people and even an insurance company like us, are right to take our goals and resolutions seriously. This article discusses why having a personal financial management plan is necessary to achieve one’s personal savings goals for the year

Financial Planning and Budgeting

If you take a peek into the new year resolutions people set for themselves this year, you will see plans like buying a new house or car, starting a new business, getting married, going for a vacation, completing an ongoing building project, and so on. However, there is one thing that cuts across all these plans — finance.

If you have set your goals for the year just as we have done, you will agree that to achieve them, you need finance. The fact is, goals come true, but not without the goal setter taking crucial steps to achieve them. 

Having a Personal Savings Plan 

One of the key steps towards achieving your goals is having a personal savings plan —a savings target that involves setting financial goals and putting money aside periodically from your income. Over time, this money accumulates to a large sum that will be enough to fund your dreams. 

We get it. Saving is not easy. Without proper financial planning and budgeting, you will probably end the year without having the financial power to do anything worthwhile. This is why you need a personal financial management plan to help you manage your savings. 

Long-term Financial Planning and Savings 

Here are some facts you need to know about Long-term savings:

  1. Long-term savings ensure that you don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Saving gives you a backup plan and ensures you don’t get stranded in the future.
  2. Humans tend to be bad at prioritizing the distant future over today’s enjoyments, must-have technology, or a weekend getaway. So, long-term savings takes determination. 
  3. Saving should come before spending. The rule is, “spend what is left, after saving”.
