In our process at Drive Planning we always begin with identifying your Hopes and Dreams which leads to setting your financial GPS; To accurately plot your course we must find the answer to a few vital questions, four to be exact. 

Allow me to summarize the four questions.

 

The Vital Questions of Your Financial Life

 

Question 1: 

What Rate of Return should your money and investment bring, for you to retire in the Current standard of living and be Certain your money will outlive you? 

 

Question 2:

How much do you have to Save every year, for you to Retire in your current standard of living and be certain that your money will outlive you?

 

Question 3:

With your current method of working and saving, what Period of Time will it take for you to retire on your current standard of living and be certain that your money will outlive you?

 

Question 4:

If you are staying on this pace right now with what you are doing, how much will you have to Reduce your standard of living in order to retire and with the certainty that your money will last for a lifetime?

 

These questions are absolutely fundamental and will ultimately become the foundation to your strategic financial decision making process. Sticking your head in the sand and avoiding these questions will not make the often times hard truth to disappear.

Facing these questions will help you gain control and lead yourself to a successful retirement.

How would it feel to knock out your bucket list…..way before you kick the bucket?

When someone thinks of a bucket list it is only natural to think well into the distant future. Treating these dream items as distant wishes. I’d like to prescribe to you that you can begin dipping into that bucket list today!

 

2020 Bucket List



Quite a while back I was fortunate to be invited into an elite study group. The study group consisted of many friends/peers who were leaders from around the country within the financial planning field. Our group, which was called Top Gun School, followed Dan Sullivan’s Strategic Coach Curriculum. If you aren’t familiar with Dan Sullivan or The Strategic Coach; I’d encourage you to make the investment in yourself. The investment is substantial however the return on investment is immeasurably life altering.

There were numerous exercises and growth moments throughout the eighteen month course, however one session in particular has always stood out. The idea that your dreams are actually much closer than you realize.

The exercise is quite simple. As with anything important its the execution that makes all the difference.

We began by taking a couple of hours in solitude to list all that we wanted to accomplish in our lives. Categorically we segmented the list into short term, medium and longer term objectives. A bucket list of sorts.

This is where the excitement grew for each of us. We began to list the necessary steps to make each of these dreams or big ideas become a reality. Next we began placing time frames/deadlines around each of our next steps. For many of us we began to envision completed projects or the coming fulfillment that was once a dream and now was a certainty

There was a realization that many items were well within reach in the near future when we simply prioritized our time and energy towards completion. It wasn’t long before we began sharing stories of monies raised, trips planned or simply the groundwork being laid out on some really big ideas.

I certainly don’t want to oversimplify the process. However, I firmly believe that when action items are applied to ideas; results will surely follow. Michael Hyatt says it this way, “With action comes clarity.”

At Drive Planning we use the phrase (even hashtag) Be Intentional! The exercise that our Top Gun Group went through simply taught us to Live with Intention. Having an instructor, Kevin Murphey, whom we all looked up to and admired to hold us accountable certainly made a huge impact on each outcome. The best in any sport or field have coaches and mentors and I will say that I have been grateful for Kevin and many others throughout the years.

I want to invite you to create that Bucket List and begin reeling it a bit closer each day, week or month. Find a mentor/coach to push you. If our Be Intentional Package will help you, well all the better.
