Do you have an issue with procrastination? Do you often put off until tomorrow what could be done today? Is there a particular area in your life that you constantly procrastinate on?
Choosing not to take advantage of the opportunities available in investment world and constantly putting off starting, can be a great source of procrastination for some. Even if we have the best of intentions, we can be merrily led down the garden path of postponement, especially with all the noise and conflicting news going on in the media.
Any slight breeze of a downturn, or rustle of doom can easily spook a big investment decision and when you add a touch of worried advice or hyper-concern by those we love, procrastination blooms in all miserable glory.
However, if you do have the intention to start investing, whether in property, the share market or managed funds, along with the research and knowledge to back it, the hesitation gap provided by the fearful usually generates the best market opportunities. That’s often when you need to make that gutsy decision the most.
Always remember, that the best way to start something, is to begin!
Make sure you don’t get caught up in all the hype out there and take the appropriate steps to invest in your future now. Most long term investors will tell you that it’s not about timing the market, but time in the market. Will you be bold enough to make the decision to invest?
