I am one of those people who make lists all the time to help prioritize my time and energy. I always put the one thing that I know I need to accomplish at the top. I tell myself that I will be content if only this one thing is completed. I then follow up with other things that would make me happy to have done, but don't need to happen immediately. Unfortunately, while cleaning out my closet this weekend I came across a list I created over 1 1/2 years ago (I tend to date the lists. I'm weird that way). Anyhow, this was a financial goals list. Right at the top was "start a college savings plan for each of my children" and "rollover my 401k from a previous job". I have not done these. The other goals were related to paying off a few items and adding to our savings. Thankfully, those were completed. But, I am struck by how I can put off something that is so crucially important to mine and my children's future. All because I'm unsure of my next step. I need to get this done for me and my boys and to provide some relief to my brain which nags me relentlessly. So, here I am, putting out to my girlfriends that I will complete these two tasks by the end of the month.
Wish me luck!
