Money is Personal
The conversation about money can be an emotional one—one that we want to avoid. We want to get on with the more important things in life rather than talk about money or so we think. We want other people, financial experts as we call them, to do heavy-lifting for us. The talk about money can be scary as it conjures up anxiety about not having enough.
But the matter of money is a personal one. It is tied to your desires, hopes and fears. The way you spend your money is reflection of your values. The values that drive our getting and spending money usually lie out of our consciousness awareness. Therefore, it is important to come to terms with the deeper reasons that drive your personal finance.
Why is money important to you?
Carl Richards, in his book: The One-Page Financial Plan says the single most important money question is “Why is money important to you?”
It is a simple question that can be easy to ignore but it holds the key to discovering your values. It is a process of discovering what really matters to you in life. For example, a person may desire financial freedom because he wants more time. But more time to do what? Perhaps more time to travel the world.
The process of asking this single most important question is to get a grip on our desires, hopes and dreams that drive our pursuit and spending of money. Getting a grip on your values will help making financial decisions easier.
How we spend our time and money, two very important resources in our lives, should reflect what we really value. Answering the single most important question about money will help you align how you spend your time and money with what you value.
It is important to write down what you answer to the single most important money question.
