Money gridlock

Gridlock: a type of traffic jam where continuous queues of vehicles block an entire network of intersecting streets, bringing traffic in all directions to a complete standstill.

Being stuck in traffic is such a waste of time. You just sit there. You have places to go but you’re completely stuck! You want the wind in your hair, the freedom of the road ahead. You want to get from A to B. You want to have the feeling you’re getting somewhere. You have a life to live on the other side of all that traffic.

Of course the Money Whisperer has to compare this to money management and to the feelings of utter frustration (and road rage)some people experience.

Have you driven your finances into a rush hour standstill?

How much time do you spend commuting between paying off debt and charging the card?

How many checking and saving accounts, credit and debit cards travel with you every day?

Can you keep track of your financial goals through the maze of statements?

Is your financial growth in gridlock or on an open freeway?

We tend to blame our money for not being enough, to not grow enough to meet our needs, to play tricks on us every month, but money is just a piece of paper or a plastic card. What rules is the management behind the spending. That’s us!! After all, we make the decisions; we choose how we spend our money. Money just follows our impulses, planning, insight, foresight… or lack thereof.

Traffic jams and gridlock will be part of our lives in the years to come. No easy solutions in sight. Getting out of money gridlock, however, can be as simple as making one phone call. Find a money coach near you. If that’s not possible go to the library and get some books on resolving debt, moving ahead financially, and/or becoming money smart, and read them. Maybe some of them are on tape or audio CD so you can listen while stuck in rush hour traffic.

My whisper for the day:
Find an alternate route for your money management and enjoy the open road ahead.
