One of my favourite quotes, attributed to Einstein, is ‘Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result’.
So if 2016 is going to be your best year ever what are you going to do differently to make this happen…..or are you insanely expecting better results by doing the same thing?!
To be fair there are lots of things that you could to improve your life that don’t involve, money, accounting tax or anything else related to my professional life. Even I understand that there’s more to life than money. But here are a few ideas you could adopt.
Want to build up some savings or investments? I’m a great believer in regular saving with re-invested income. If you treat saving as a monthly bill and just leave it to grow, in time you can build up substantial assets. Again quoting Einstein, ‘Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it…he who doesn’t…pays it’.
Want to work for yourself? The economy seems good still, so this is a fine time to start in business. If you want to understand how it works, what you need to do in terms of financial administration I can send you my booklet that can help you. I’m very happy to go through this with you, free and with no obligation.
Want to change the way you do accounts? You might want to automate your accounting to make it easier, more efficient and receive better information. We like Xero (www.xero.co.uk) take a look at their website, but other providers are available.
Want to take better control of your business? You can do this by understanding your business finances, in most businesses there are one or two numbers that are critical to your success. Your accounting system should be able to provide these. If you would like to discuss what is important in your business, please get in touch.
The world is constantly changing, it we want to take control we need to adapt and change to make 2016 our best year ever.
