What will your future you think of current you?

Inevitably it seems, the retirement age will be pushed back. Also as more and more people do retire, Government Pensions are likely to become harder to access and also provide relatively less than they do now. And knowing this, you are doing what exactly to prepare?

Maybe your future you will look back and say ‘well past me was busy and did’t have time to plan ahead’. Or maybe, ‘Poor old past me couldn’t find a few bucks a week to make sure I was better looked after’.

Or maybe future you will look around and wonder why past you didn’t spend a few hours twice a year getting a grip on what you were up to financially. Or maybe future you will regret not finding a few dollars to look after them better. Or maybe they will wonder why when past you had the opportunity to financially support companies whose activities they approved of, you ‘didn’t know any better’ and ‘didn’t really bother with super’. Maybe future you will really want to kick yourself for not taking advantage of the opportunities that were spread out in front of you.

Or perhaps future you will thank you for taking the time to take action to ensure future you had the lifestyle you wanted with investments that align with your values.

What keeps you awake at night?

A recent research report looked at what made Australians ‘confident’ and also what keeps us up at night. The number one issue that made people feel confident was ‘job security’ (which rated even higher than ‘being in love’ for providing confidence!) Of the top 5 things however that keep people awake, 4 of them were things that could be helped by seeking professional financial advice. After ‘losing my job’ the next 4 were ‘not being financially stable’, ‘getting a life threatening disease’, ‘stress from work overload’ and ‘not being able to pay your bills’. Do these things keep you awake at night? Do you agree with the findings of the report?
