From Minutes to Milestones – Spend Time Building Financial Well-being

Time is a precious commodity. Where and how we spend our time is what generates money, happiness and wellbeing. The saying, “What you seed is what you will reap,” holds profound wisdom. It’s a reminder to consider how our daily actions and choices impact our lives.

When the day starts, it is crucial to know how to spend it. Effective planning begins in advance. Engaging in early morning sports safeguards our health, providing an energetic start to the day. Shopping for fresh food ensures healthy eating habits, which are vital for our overall well being.

Maintaining a structured diary for work helps focus on productivity and output. 

Think of time as a pizza – every slice represents a priority. Each decade of our life has a different focus. If you are a young parent whilst building a career then family and work are big slices; personal time would be a smaller slice of time. Always end  the day by tracking how it went, and noting where time was spent, where money was saved or spent, will help us stay mindful of our personal and financial habits.

Key Strategies for Daily Planning

  • Early Morning Physical Activity: Safeguards health and boosts energy levels.
  • Shopping Fresh Food: Ensures healthy eating habits.
  • Structured Work Diary: Focuses on productivity and output.
  • Social Time with Friends: Connects with real-life encounters.
  • End-of-Day Tracking: Reviews daily progress and financial habits.

Set goals – short, medium, and long term. Habits will deliver our goals. 

Building habits shapes our days, weeks, months, and years. Through small, consistent actions, we create a foundation for long-term success. Although it may not be feasible to accomplish everything in one day, setting and achieving goals within a week is possible with the right habits and intentional use of time.

Through experience, we know that life can slip away if we don’t take control. We face many demands as parents, partners, businesspeople, and friends—often prioritizing others’ needs over our own. The challenge lies in managing our time to ensure it reflects our priorities.

The Queendom suggests regularly checking in with our goals, desires, and necessities. Is our time dedicated to what truly matters? Are we satisfied with how and where our time is spent? It’s essential to assess whether we need to do more or less of certain activities to reach our goals. Recognize what works best for you and eliminate obligations that don’t serve your interests. Learning to say “no” is difficult but necessary to protect your time and wellbeing.

Habits for Achieving Financial Well-being

  • Check-In with Goals: Ensure time is dedicated to what matters most.
  • Adjust Priorities: Do more or less of activities to reach goals.
  • Eliminate Unnecessary Obligations: Focus on what serves your interests.
  • Learn to Say No: Protect your time and wellbeing.
  • Invest Time Wisely: Focus on activities that contribute to financial wellbeing.

Consider if you are investing enough time in activities that contribute to your financial wellbeing. Achieving financial independence requires focusing on both your time and money.

Happy focusing. Remember, time is money.
