“Purpose is a prerequisite to progress.” –Steve Adcock
Without a purpose to your efforts you aren’t making progress, you’re just spinning your wheels.
Think of it like a swimmer. If you jump in a pool without a purpose, you aren’t swimming–you’re splashing. However, someone who decides to swim laps for practice or fitness, has purpose. And because they’ve fulfilled the prerequisite, they can now measure their progress.
Give your finances purpose, so that you can begin to make progress.
So many people abandon financial goals because there was never a purpose. There’s no progress to motivate them to continue because there was never a purpose in the first place.
Find your purpose.
Then make your progress.
