What about your financial life? With 4 months of the year passed, do you feel like 2014 is coming to reflect your vision and values, or are you starting to feel like another year is slipping by with little to no progress on realizing your goals?
But these are just impersonal numbers -- your situation and feelings about your own financial well being are going to depend more heavily on issues particular to you: do you feel more comfortable, more secure, more prepared than you did in January, or in May of last year?
Too often in conversations around investment planning and money management, the focus falls squarely on performance and percentages, when really what most of us want to is to believe that we're going to "be ok".
- What does "OK" look like for me and my family?
- Do we have a way measure "OK"?
- Do we have a plan to move things towards more "OK"?
