How Serious is too Serious?

Written and accurate as at: 10 September 2013

Here are a few things you can do to keep the stress and seriousness out of money:

  • Set out and remain focused on financial plans and goals;
  • Remember that unexpected financial needs may arise;
  • Do up a budget, assess cash inflows and outflows, and don’t let bills take over;
  • Make allocation in your budget for pleasurable items too; and
  • Find out your money personality as this can help identify strengths and weaknesses and help reduce conflict and stress around money.

Approaching your financial life with a non-serious yet focused attitude will help overcome any difficulties that come your way while making the most of the money you make and accumulate.
