Keeping on track
Posted by siteadmin on Wednesday 6th April 2022.
With 2022 being my 60th year on planet earth, I’m undertaking what I’m referring to as my Challenge60 Quadrathlon. It’s a series of sporting challenges being completed over the coming months and totals 100 kilometres, circa 60 miles. Additionally, I’m raising much needed funds for https://www.raceagainstdementia.com/.

At the time of writing, the first of these four challenges is coming up this weekend and where I’ve been in a regimented training programme to prepare.
I have my personal trainer coaching me and my physiotherapist keeping me limbered. Most importantly, both are keeping me on track. Thus, allowing me the greatest chance of success. As opposed to me thinking that I know all the answers and I can coach myself.
Interestingly, this is exactly the same in lifestyle financial planning terms. The core principles being where we first get people on track, followed by ensuring that they stay there. All with their personal and perhaps family objectives in mind, which are of course unique to them.
Sure, I could’ve saved myself some money and watched a few YouTube videos and trained myself. But I doubt, in fact I know, that by not having someone making me accountable to my aims and goals, would’ve meant that the possibility of failure would be greater.
There are so many things that we all want to do in life. But we make excuses in that we don’t have time, the capability or resource to do it.
Remember that life is not a rehearsal, and we only get one crack at it. And although the money is important, it’s what we do with it that really counts.
At the very least wish me luck. I’m going to need it!
