The new year is fast upon us. Even though we're in the midst of the busy holiday season, this is a convenient time to consider the success and failures of this year and look forward to plans for next year.
Even though the articles you're now seeing in your feeds on "10 End-Of-The-Year Planning Ideas" can be useful, they just don't get it done because they're not focused on the core need.
The fundamental key of financial planning is to understand the process. Building wealth is a process. Achieving goals is a process. It's simple and can be readily replicated if you understand it.
It starts with a clear desired outcome. A.K.A. a goal. Or objective.
Then, it's a matter of laying out a strategy that is likely to work. And that strategy is connected with specific action steps.
And then you simply repeat the cycle over and over and over again.
Enjoy the show. I hope that it's useful for you!

Visioning Exercise (excerpted from Jack Canfield's "Success Principles" book
This is an exercise that is designed to help you clarify your vision. Although you could do this as a strictly mental exercise by just thinking about the answers and writing them down, I want to encourage you to go deeper than that. If you do, you'll get deeper answers that serve you better.
 
Start by putting on some relaxing music and sitting quietly in a comfortable environment where you won't be disturbed. Then, close our eyes and ask your subconscious mind to give you images of what your ideal life would look like if you could have it exactly the way you want it, in each of the following categories.
 
1. First, focus on the financial area of your life. What is your annual income? What does your cash flow look like? How much money do you have in savings and investments? What is your total net worth?
 
Next...what does your home look like? Where is it located? Does it have a view? What kind of yard and landscaping does it have? Is there a pool or a stable for horses? What color are the walls? What does the furniture look like? Are there paintings hanging in the rooms? What do they look like? Walk through your perfect house, filling in all of the details.
 
At this point, don't worry about how you'll get that house. Don't sabotage yourself by saying, "I can't live in Malibu because I don't make enough money." Once you give your mind’s eye the picture, your mind will solve the “not enough money” challenge.  
 
Next visualize what kind of car you are driving and any other important possessions your finances have provided.

 
2. Next, visualize your ideal job or career.  Where are you working?  What are you doing? With whom are you working? What kind of clients or customers do you have? What is your compensation like?  Is it your own business?
 
3. Then, focus on your free time, your re
