Managing time is saving money. When we have control of our time, it makes our load easier, and our lives stronger. When we are achieving a financial limit, we need to understand the value of a dollar. If you are saving money to achieve a goal, it is always smart to store your funds in accounts that include interest on the dollar. Some banks offer more interest rates than others do, so it pays to shop around. If you are investing in short-term goals and saving money for the occasion, you might want to open a different account. For example, if you intend to take a Holiday Vacation, you will save funds, but keep it separate from your business account. If you have a Mortgage Loan, you might want to review your terms & agreements, since some loans offer vacation packages. In addition, you might want to note that money market accounts and saving accounts are great for short-term goals, such as vacations. By saving your money in accounts that include interest, it allows you to accumulate addition savings, and your ‘principal is secure.’ If you are opening, accounts to save money for long or short-term goals, be sure the accounts do not have hidden fees, charges, or ‘penalties for early’ withdrawals. Saving money is managing time, so if you are paying fees and charges, or penalties you are spending money and burning time.
No matter what you goals are, it takes money to obtain them. There are no exceptions to the rule. If you are saving for retirement, or to send your kid to college, it is wise to set a goal in the short-term range for one goal and a long-term for the other goal. For example if you are saving funds for college tuitions, you want to set a five-year term agreement with yourself, unless your child is going to college next year. If you are saving for retirement this is a long-term agreement that you want to invest wisely. Remember times are constantly changing and prices are soaring, so calculate the increases in your time management scheme for the best turn around. This will help you save money and time. Be sure you know what you are getting into to reduce your risks if this is your lifestyle. If you investments are an opportunity to achieve long-term goals, then be sure that you realize that no investment is sound proof. Make sure you keep savings in an account that are not used for your investments, since you will need a backup plan when all else fails. Likewise, if you are investing your money in lottery tickets, you are wasting time. Unless you are lucky, most people only win a few dollars, so do not include this in your time management scheme, because it will only bring you down once you realize you are wasting time and money. Time management is the process of making wise decisions to achieve goals and flexibility as well as saving money. When you create a good time management scheme, you are well on your way to success.
