个人理财如何像高尔夫

个人理财高尔夫啊..它'是中西部的春天'已经足够温暖,可以打高尔夫球!那里'没有什么比重击那个球并看到它上升和下降 against the bright blue sky (well, that's the way it's supposed to happen anyways). I love golf. It's funny how a goofy 游戏 can teach you so much about life – and even 个人财务!

如果你打高尔夫球–希望您能与以下相关。如果你不这样做–我仍然希望您能够拿出一些可以应用到自己的财务状况中的东西(然后开始玩)– 你错过了!)

球道和果岭
高尔夫是所有关于一致性的要素。如果您能够始终如一地做出相同的动作并使球保持比赛状态,那么您将做得很好。如果您偏离球道而错过很多果岭–有很多陷阱,危险和垃圾可以破坏您的分数。个人理财也是如此。通常是一遍又一遍地做出小而明智的选择。当您持续储蓄时,明智地花钱并做出明智的财务选择–您将设置独立/自由课程。

好的和坏的休息
有时称为“rub of the green” –您的高尔夫球可能会撞到岩石,树或您的玩伴,并最终进入小溪或距洞口两英尺远。是好是坏–就是这样。我去过很多地方“robbed” of a good shot –但同时–在游戏过程中得到了一些偶然的帮助。个人理财也是如此。有时屋顶漏水–我们的车坏了,或者我们从玛贝尔姨妈那里拿了大笔钱。这些是休息时间。随着我们继续玩球,我们如何应对这些绿色的摩擦将产生巨大的变化“game”.

您的演奏伙伴
One of the real treasures of golf is getting to play with and meet different people from all walks of life. Some of my best friends have come through the 游戏 (including 查理!). But pick your playing partners carefully. They can really lift your 游戏 up or bring you down. Surround yourself with good, encouraging and helpful people in  your life. Be around those who encourage, inspire and are financially healthy. These folks have your back at all times and will even help you look for a lost ball.

您的设备
Ever tried to golf with clubs that are too short, too long or just inferior in quality? Your 游戏 will suffer. 使sure you are properly fitted with the right equipment and you'll play better. Do you have all the right tools in your financial life? A sound budget that is easy to follow? A retirement plan? Are you informed about your options?

最小化您的失误
本·霍根 –被广泛认为拥有最多的人“perfect” golf swing ever –曾经有人问过他在又一轮精彩的高尔夫比赛后打了多少好球。霍根抬起手,露出四根手指。高尔夫经常被认为是“game of misses”。越少减少未命中,您的得分就越高。您一定也会在财务上分担错误。关键是不要使他们恶化。如果你让自己陷入沉重的债务负担–减少损失,从错误的选择中吸取教训,并回到力所能及的储蓄基础上。

我可以继续– as there are so many parallels to the 游戏 of golf and 个人财务! Do you see any other things we can learn from this great 游戏?
