Empty your cup so that it may be filled.
Emptiness is the starting point, when you are in a state of confusion, anger or blaming.....being empty is an opportunity to be filled. - Bruce Lee
We are disoriented and off balance, as we continue to deal with this "new normal". Should I go back into the office, will my child be sent home from his school, is it safe to go back to the gym? Our routines have been shattered. We are in a state of confusion. Our minds go over our lists in an endless spiral.
I love the Bruce Lee quote above. It suggests to me that our current disorientation can be reframed as an invitation to reorient, defined as "to change the focus or direction of; to find one's position again in relation to one's surroundings."
How are you reorienting this fall? How have your priorities and goals changed? I have found that time with family, friends, and other activities that bring me joy, has become my priority
Your financial strategy is a reflection of your priorities and goals. Make sure you have a financial plan in place that reflects how your priorities, (and perhaps your relationship to market volatility), have changed over the last few months.
