How to Give Saver’s Block the Boot
Are you suffering from saver’s block? If you don’t know if you are or not, we will list two of the most common symptoms associated with saver’s block. Lack of ideas or never ending to-do lists are two symptoms that lead to saver’s block. The most prominent sign that you have saver’s block is that you lack the ability to save money.
Money, at this point, is not your friend, as it keeps running away from you no matter how hard you chase after it. The reason it’s so far away is that you aren’t able to hold it down. Therefore, we will provide you How to Give Saver’s Block the Boot.
Plan Less, Do More
Don’t spend your entire day, planning about what you still have to do. Instead, take charge and start doing what’s on your list immediately. Throughout the day, the list will keep growing; your aim should be to decrease it. For instance, put the money in the safe deposit, pay the bills, or talk to insurers about getting another price.
Focus On What Can Be Done
Take care of the tasks that you achieve immediately and rank each task as small, medium, and big. Start with the smallest and most achievable task, and then work your way backwards. A small task is not to buy coffee from the store, but make your own. A medium task is paying some of your bills. A big task is to get a new and improved deal on your home loan rate or car insurance.
Do Not Attempt to Carry Out New Tasks
Don’t move on to doing new tasks when you still have previous tasks remaining. You want to complete each task successfully, before moving on to a new one. If you leave tasks uncompleted, your saver’s block will remain, as the incomplete tasks will become a burden on you down the line. Your aim is to complete twelve of each type of task, big, medium, and small at the end of the year. Completing all of these tasks in order will help you save money.
